Bilingualism from an Educational Perspective, 7.5 credits

About the education

The course highlights aspects of bi- and multilingualism from an educational perspective and debates ways to organize teaching for bi- or multilingual speakers in different contexts. Prevailing ideologies about language in education in different contexts are also discussed. Among other things, the issue of teaching languages in multilingual countries of the South will be analysed and discussed. Overall, the course promotes a critical perspective on education, including the teaching of reading and writing, and evaluates normalized conceptions of teaching for bi- / multilingual individuals.
