The NALDIC Blog is back with exciting work on EAL policy, practice and research!
It is NALDIC’s mission to support and advocate for the community of EAL learners and practitioners, and through the blog we will continue to share ideas and resources (for free!) taking a stand on the issues that face us all and showcasing the fantastic work that EAL practitioners and young people do every day. Half-termly, we will post blog articles from researchers, students and practitioners who will bring practical advice and share their experience of teaching, learning about teaching and/or researching EAL and multilingualism more broadly. In line with the theme of the 30th Anniversary conference (November 2022), the new series of the NALDIC Blog aims at broadening the conversation on EAL, multilingualism and language education by including perspectives and experiences from other language education-related contexts and sectors.
NALDIC’s EAL blog is produced by the NALDIC publications team | email@example.com.
