CIC often is faced with the topic "Multilingualism". We are very happy that we have found an expert for this topic and therefor decided to start a new column called “Multilingualism matters”, in order to offer more information on the topic of language learning and bi/multilingualism. This column was planned by Dr. Karin Martin and it will report the most important results in this field.
A long tradition of scientific research has shown that growing up with more than one language can have some benefits in many aspects of our life. Nonetheless, multilingualism in our society is still surrounded by prejudices and misconceptions, mainly because of lack of information. In the coming months through eight different articles, this column aims at disseminating accurate information about bi/multilingualism.
