Bilingualism Matters @ Monash Education serves as a collaborative group for researchers and academics, teachers and community members interested in bilingualism and language learning. Our primary objective is the generation and dissemination of knowledge in this field, to support teachers, parents and community groups. Through ongoing forums, support and advisory services, and academic programs and events, the branch aims to raise awareness among local schools, policy makers, and society at large of the benefits of bi/multilingualism. By fostering dialogue and collaboration, we facilitate the exchange of ideas, promote best practice in classroom contexts, and bridge the gap between research and practice.
