Would you like to know more about a multilingual approach to language learning and how art can act as a vehicle to explore this?

As part of the Teaching Polish through Art in Multilingual Scotland project, SCILT, in collaboration with Bilingualism Matters Edinburgh, has been working with teachers in mainstream primary schools and Polish complementary schools, to investigate a multilingual approach to language learning through the medium of art. This has included exploring a variety of activities to support this such as language portraits, zines, multilingual comic strips and Chagallian idioms. Teachers from the participating schools have been implementing this approach with their pupils through various art activities that exemplify multilingualism.

The pupils’ work is to be featured in an online exhibition which will launch with a special event during Languages Week Scotland on 3rd February 2022 at 2pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from pupils, teachers and partners who have participated in this project, in addition to viewing the pupils’ creativity and their artwork. The event is suitable for practitioners in all sectors, EAL teachers, language leads, development officers and student teachers.

Attendance at the event is free of charge and will be hosted on the MS Teams platform.
