Date and venue: 11 April 2024, Grenoble-Alpes University, France
Local organisation: Academic Steering Committee for Modern Languages and Academic School for Continuing Education
ECML experts: Béatrice Leonforte (Switzerland) and Michel Candelier (France)
Participants: 120 - supervisory staff and trainers from primary and secondary schools


In the presence of ECML experts (Michel Candelier and Béatrice Leonforte) and academics from the Lidilem laboratory at Grenoble Alpes University, a seminar on pluralistic approaches to languages and cultures was attended by 120 managers and trainers from the Grenoble education authority. This seminar, which took a resolutely cross-curricular approach, enabled primary and secondary school teachers to become aware of the work already underway in the field of pluralistic approaches to languages, as well as benefiting from high-level scientific contributions, discovering numerous examples of activities and acquiring new resources.

This workshop, organised with the strong support of the ECML, consolidated what already exists and opened up fruitful avenues of work for the future – in particular by outlining prospects for work in nursery schools, CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) classes, mathematics, vocational training or as part of bilanguage continuity classes (classes of 6ème pupils who have benefited from the teaching of two modern languages at primary level). The participants appreciated this time for taking a step back, exchanging ideas and reflecting, which gave them the desire to go further in developing the plurilingual and pluricultural skills promoted by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
