Decisions about which language of instruction to use is an important topic around the world, with many debates about policy decisions to introduce English to teach across the curriculum – particularly in low- and middle-income contexts. The MultiLiLa research project aims to contribute vital evidence to inform these decisions.
The British Council was a key partner in the MultiLiLa project from 2016–2020, led by the University of Cambridge and funded by the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) and the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office under the umbrella of the Global Education Challenge.
In addition to the research, the project also undertook capacity building activities with teachers in Hyderabad. This led to the development of three films illustrating multilingual education in practice, available here.
