The Teaching of English in Multilingual Classrooms
 
Multilingualism is one of the realities facing the English language teacher in the 21st century classroom.  Students come from different language and cultural backgrounds and this poses a challenge for teachers who must consider the students’ varied repertoires in developing their communicative competencies. How should English be taught so that it might work together with local languages and cultures? What kind of materials should be used? What assessment tools might work best within the OBE framework?
 
This conference workshop aims to provide teachers with pedagogical frameworks for the teaching of English in multilingual classrooms.  It will also guide the teachers in designing lessons within the OBE framework that will suit the language needs of 21st century learners.  At the end of the conference, participants are expected to gain a more enlightened approach in the teaching of English to today’s diverse learners.
