UCom - Ulster University Centre on Multilingualism
Inspired by the success of Bilingualism Matters in Scotland, the linguistics team at Ulster have established UCoM to provide a local service to share current research on multilingualism with families and professionals in Northern Ireland by:
- offering detailed information on several key questions on multilingual language acquisition and development;
- addressing frequently asked questions and concerns by parents and language professionals;
- organising events in the community where the benefits as well as the challenges of the process of growing up multilingual will be discussed with interested parties.
Current research in linguistics and language acquisition shows a range of benefits from growing up with more than one language.
If you would like us to organise a talk in your school/community centre contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
