WHO IS #LIEC2018 INTENDED FOR?

#LIEC2018 – Being Bilingual is aimed at the initiators of change in education, young people who follow global trends and apply them in their work, enthusiasts who are ready to take on new challenges, as well as all those who want to make an academic contribution by introducing another language in their mode of operation:

  • bilingual teachers,
  • English and other foreign language teachers,
  • expert associates,
  • students of pedagogy, psychology and foreign languages,
  • education inspectors,
  • education board members,
  • and all interested decision makers.

PARTNERS

The LINK International Edu Conference 2018 – Being Bilingual is organised in cooperation with the partners of LINK Examinations Institute.

THE CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES OF BILINGUAL EDUCATION

Cambridge Assessment International Education, part of the University of Cambridge, is the most developed institution in the world promoting bilingual education, also supported by the European Union whose motto is Unity in diversity.

 

“Languages can build bridges between people, giving us access to other countries and cultures, and enabling us to understand each other better”. EU

This practice is improving each year in Serbia as well, as proven by the schools in which students learn in two languages and the growing number of other institutions promoting this kind of development. Adopting the Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) model which refers to teaching subjects through a foreign language (not necessarily English) simultaneously with one’s mother tongue, is merely one of the solutions offered to educational institutions worldwide.

 

The benefits of this kind of learning are numerous – the students can understand a wider cultural context, strengthen their language competences, prepare themselves for future studies and business careers, develop various interests and attitudes…
