Europe is becoming increasingly multilingual. This brings many benefits and also many challenges, both curricular and organisational, to schools and classrooms. According to PISA 2015, 12.5% of the 15+ year-old students across the OECD countries had an immigrant background. This presents diverse challenges to schools, and especially to teachers.
Through a questionnaire for teachers, the Multilingual Group of the European Literacy Network (COST Action IS1401) is seeking to obtain and analyse information about teachers’ knowledge, attitudes and behaviours with regard to multilingualism.
