Learning environments where modern languages flourish

Fostering learning environments where modern languages flourish aims to place languages right at the heart of education policy developments. It seeks through (and for) languages to strengthen the development both of social competences and competences for democratic citizenship. The project is supported by a European network of partner schools, with innovative approaches to establishing language friendly learning environments which promotes the exchange of related resources, research and practice.

Teaching the language of schooling in the context of diversity. Study materials for teacher development

On Maledive website you will find ideas and information about plurilingual approaches. They have been designed to help teachers of the language of schooling (e.g. French in France, Polish in Poland) to integrate learners with other first languages into their classes, to get them to recognise the links between their own or their parents' cultural background and that of the school language - and at the same time to enrich the cultural and linguistic experience of all learners.
