Description

In the second part of the lecture, Björn Rothstein introduces key concepts of multilingualism, first discussing the monolingual habits (Gogolin 1989) that prescribe German as the main language in German schools. He then considers the importance of language skills in a diverse Europe, where the coexistence of many languages is a powerful symbol and identity builder. Secondly, Björn Rothstein explores the idea of diglossia (Ferguson 1959) and bilingualism, before finally examining the development of first and second languages in children.
