AILA 2020 Conference

15 August 20 August 2021

Language and education are an inextricable pair, yet for regional languages this is not as obvious as for national languages. Recent studies point to the decline of language use of regional languages, although ample evidence is provided of the advantages of multilingual education at home and in school, also when it concerns a standard language combined with a regional or minority language.

At AILA 2020 in Groningen, the Netherlands, this theme brings together case studies on regional language(s) in education, in order to learn of the do’s and don’ts to create support from governmental and educational authorities and civilians, to raise funding and to apply educational programs of high quality for regional languages.
