This book aims to introduce important evidence relating to language learning in multilingual contexts and develop the practice of using multilingual approaches in the classroom. It has been especially designed to support teachers who teach English as a subject and for teachers who use English as the medium of instruction in classrooms with students in linguistically diverse and often resource-poor communities. The resource has three main parts: 1) A guide that explains relevant research evidence; 2) Strategies, activities and projects that teachers can use in their classrooms; 3) An abridged list of resources for multilingual education for further exploration.
