Mother-tongue based multilingual education English Worldwide nearly 7000 languages are spoken today. Many languages are spoken by ethnic minorities who are educationally and economically disadvantaged because of limited language fluency. This language gap must be bridged if countries are to fulfill the Millennium Development Goals and Education for All aims. More than 200 million children globally live in homes where languages spoken are different than the ones used in school. These children are vulnerable to non enrolment, repetition and non completion.
Language and learning English How many languages can a child learn at once? Is there a 'window' of opportunity, or can they learn multiple languages at any time? And what are the cognitive benefits of learning more than one language? In this video research psychologists and a language teacher are asked about how children acquire second, third or fourth languages and how it helps.
How Children acquire and produce language English Video excerpt is from the BBC's critically acclaimed documentary 'The Human Body' (2001).
