1. Multilingual Classrooms

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 this 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. 

We are interested in your views and experiences. There are no right or wrong answers. We hope that by collecting this information we will be in a stronger position to support teaching and learning for all students and to support professionals in their work. For the purpose of this questionnaire the terms used are defined as:

Multilingualism - defined as the use of two or more languages.

Migrant - a person who moves from one country to another.

First language or mother tongue - language acquired in early childhood before the age of 3 years that is the  LI.

Target language - the language/s being taught in the classroom.
All data in the questionnaire is anonymous and cannot be trailed back to you as an individual.
This questionnaire will take you about 20 to 30  minutes to complete.
