How many languages are spoken in your class?
Ciao! cześć! Hola! Our classes are really multilingual, and as teachers it is important to understand how to make the most of the many languages we have in our classes and communities.
Every school should know which languages are spoken by the pupils and they should know which are the most widely spoken ones. In some schools this information may be collected at the point of enrollment, in some schools the information emerges only once the teacher gets to know the children better.
If you are a teacher looking for lesson ideas or resources to support multilingual children in your class, head to our Database of Topics, and consider becoming a Member of Mother Tongues to avail of the many exclusive benefits for members!
