Sharing Languages: Celebrating Children’s and Teenagers’ Multilingualism in ELT
The IATEFL Manchester YLTSIG PCE will explore children’s and teenagers’ multilingualism in ELT from sociolinguistic, cognitive and affective perspectives. The day-long event will unpack ways children and teenagers develop and manage their multiple languages, consider the benefits of multilingualism for ELT and identify classroom strategies to value children’s and teenagers’ linguistic repertoires. Please see the flyer for the superb line-up of speakers!
The PCE venue is Manchester Art Gallery, a short walk away from the main Manchester Central venue. For more information and to register, visit the IATEFL Manchester website
