The research group Analyzing Linguistic Multicompetence (ALM) at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences warmly invites to a workshop/seminar on plurilingualism and plurilingual education, with special reference to the Framework of Reference for Pluralistic Approaches to Languages and Cultures (FREPA).

As the European Center for Modern Languages (ECML) states;

"Pluralistic approaches to languages and cultures (Language awareness, Integrated didactic approaches, Intercomprehension between related languages, Intercultural approaches) are based on activities that include several linguistic and cultural varieties. They develop a concrete concept of the multilingual and multicultural competence promoted by the Common European Framework of Reference for languages. They provide tools which allow for the design and bringing together of didactic interventions favorable to the development and continuous enrichment of this competence by learners. Dedicated to plurilingual and pluricultural dimensions of learning, FREPA complements the other instruments of the Council of Europe" (https://carap.ecml.at/Keyconcepts/tabid/2681/language/en-GB/Default.aspx)".

The workshop is conducted by Michel Candelier (Université du Maine, France) and Petra Daryai-Hansen (University of Copenhagen) and funded by the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML)

Registered participants are invited to a complimentary joint lunch at HVL following the workshop.
