Dear Followers,

As the project coordinator, I am pleased to announce that the LangWork team has published all project publications. You will find them on our website, under the 'resources' tab. Take a look!

In addition to four planned results, we're also providing you with two additional ones. Here's what's available:

Result 1: the research paper about translanguaging practices

The result no. 1 is a working paper, based on research activities completed by the partners. This paper is an overview of pedagogical translanguaging practices for education as a workplace. We are on the lookout for tools that increase language aware communication and help build a culture of respect for multilingual participants.
