Project results and products remain available on this website for you
The VirtuLApp (Virtual Language App) project group addresses the needs of teachers concerning multilingual education, and supports them to gain more knowledge about and tools for multilingual education, integration of migrant languages and less language separation. Therefore, VirtuLApp has developed an innovative multididactic approach which teachers can use in the classroom in any situation, by providing knowledge on multilingual didactics, application of that knowledge and tools to use in the classroom.
The project is coordinated by the Mercator European Research Centre, hosted at the Fryske Akademy in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Other partners working at the project are ATiT (Belgium), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), University of the Basque Country (Spain) and LUCA School of Arts (Belgium).
The children in my classroom speak a lot of different languages. How can I use all languages in the lessons and prevent that it takes too much time?
How can I motivate my colleagues to also use multiple languages in the classroom?
I really want to create a multilingual classroom, but how can I do that when I am not proficient in all languages? How can I give the ‘expert-role’ to the pupils themselves?
