On the occasion of the European Day of Languages, RUEG and the Centre “Language in Urban Diversity” (LUD) turn the Humboldt Lab into a place of multilingualism and its research in action.

With the Project “Capturing our sound(scapes) – vielfältige Sprachlandschaften an unseren Schulen, students and teachers captured the linguistic diversity in their schools. Join us for the presentation of the best projects and get inspired by multilingual teaching and educational materials at information booths.

In her talk, Prof. Dr. Rosemarie Tracy will illustrate how valuable multilingualism is for both learners and teachers. A panel discussion will approach the question of why and how multilingualism and its appreciation should be integrated more into lessons and curricula.


Free ticket booking at the Humboldt Lab's website.
