1.2.1 Migration contexts

Review Materials

Welcome to the “Migration contexts” Section of the ENRICH CPD Course. Here you will come across the main issues concerning migration flows in Europe nowadays so that you can reflect upon them and acquire a critical perspective about the current development of multicultural societies and new pedagogical implications. This Section refers to the definition of the relevant terms of migration, with reference to the situation in Europe. The implicit assumption in the exploration of current societal innovations will be how English is affected and used in cross-cultural communication. This Section also provides an overview of the main issues concerning linguistic diversity in the English language teaching, each of which focuses on specific aspects related to using English in multilingual and multicultural contexts. This Section includes 4 Activities in total.
