MULTIMAT (Multilingualism Matters Research Group)

 

The MULTIMAT Research Group at the Institute for Multilingualism investigates the development of multilingualism through naturalistic, immersion and formal language acquisition.

More specifically, the group carries out applied linguistics research on:

  • The effects of Integrated Content and Language in Higher Education (ICLHE), Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and EFL on linguistic gains (English as a Foreign Language) on all educational levels.
  • Social interaction and its affordances for teaching, learning and teacher development in ICLHE / CLIL / EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction) contexts.
  • The acquisition and maintenance of Catalan, Spanish, foreign and heritage languages in school-age children and adults in the context of Catalonia.
