Multilingualism and internationalisation

  • Thursday 13 Sept
  • Room Q, Level 0, Palexpo
  • Level: all
  • Related Expert Communities Language and Culture

This research-based session will focus on the effect of internationalisation strategies on already multilingual individuals, particularly those with a community languages/heritage languages (CL/HL) background. We’ll discuss how universities can value and grant recognition for such language competences as well as how existing multilingualism can support universities in the process of internationalisation.
