Our current vitality…

Soler, Josep; Björkman, Beyza; Kuteeva, Maria – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
As universities seek to become more international, their need to engage with a wider range of languages, particularly English, seems more prominent. At the same time, universities are also regarded by many stakeholders as key institutions to preserve a given national language and culture. This apparent tension makes universities a fruitful ground…

Fuentes, Ronald; Gómez Soler, Inmaculada – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018

Demie, Feyisa – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2018
English as an additional language (EAL) and language diversity attract much interest amongst policymakers and educationists; yet little is known about the performance in English schools of EAL pupils who are not fluent in English and speak different languages at home. The findings of the aggregated data confirm that EAL pupils achieved less well…

We tested this empirically poorly supported assumption on high-school students from South…
