Languages of Sydney: The people and the passion

Alice Chik, Susan Markose and Diane Alperstein

The Macquarie Multilingualism Research Group, Macquarie University

In Sydney, more than 52% of school students have a language background other than English. To address ways of knowing and learning of our diverse student population, educators need to acknowledge, recognise and incorporate in their teaching the linguistic and cultural heritage of their students. To coincide with the publication of their book, Languages of Sydney: The people and the passion, the authors will address two questions. How do multilingual students view languages? How do languages shape students' identities?

WHEN: 30 March 2019 - 2:30pm - 4pm

WHERE: Dixson Room, Ground floor, Mitchell Building Sydney
