If you are a teacher of English, a learner of other languages or just a language lover you might have asked yourself this question: what makes someone bilingual?


Welcome to another NILE Insights event Thursday 2 December 4.00pm UK time

There are many dimensions to consider and definitely not a unique answer. This multilingual, international panel of teachers will discuss, reflect on a variety of topics and hopefully help you understand your multilingual classes a bit more.

Some areas that could be considered:

  • Myths about early language learning
  • Myths about accent
  • Mother tongue influence in English language learning
  • Multilingualism in language teaching
  • Language and affection in language learning
  • Translanguaging
  • Heritage languages
  • CLIL and pluriliteracy

NILE Consultant Trainer, Laura Renart is joined by three panellists bringing different perspectives on bilingualism: Asma Herguem, Claudia Mewald and Phil Ball will be answering the host’s and your questions, and some of their own.

You can submit your questions in advance or pose them directly to the panel during the live session.
This interactive, insightful event is free to all – but places are limited.
