As educators, we strive towards one goal – preparing our students for the future and all the ups and downs they will be facing in the world they live in. While societies connect more and more, communication and everyday interactions have become more complex than ever before. We can help you as a school or a teacher to build bridges. We will provide you with the necessary knowledge and resources to help your students see the world from an international perspective.

Multicultural Classroom Workshop
The workshop “Multicultural Classroom” is designed for teachers who find themselves in the situation of teaching students from diverse cultural backgrounds with different levels of communication skills. When navigating a multilingual classroom, it is especially important to put a high emphasis on aspects of language-in-use in order to raise metalinguistic awareness. This workshop aims to help current and future teachers become aware of the fact that for effective communication students’ diverse cultural backgrounds and language skills do not need to be an obstacle, but can also be an advantage in everyday communication. Participants will be able to see their classroom from more than a monolingual perspective and will thereby be able to better guide their students’ communication in the classroom community.
Teaching students from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds is a challenge that many teachers face every day. While it is often seen as an obstacle, a diverse group of students is first and foremost an advantage for both the students and teachers. This workshop will help teachers to
- Use their multilingual classroom for their own educational purposes,
- Raise their metalinguistic awareness,
- and look at their challenges from new perspectives to turn them into fun experiences for themselves and their students.
Drawing on theories in educational linguistics, the workshop will provide tools and strategies to guide students through everyday classroom situations and help them become better communicators in all life situations.
