A linguistic ethnographic research project seeking to understand the practices of multilingualism in the setting of two primary (‘lower basic’) schools in The Gambia.
An academic research project based at King’s College London which focusses on the integration of the languages of The Gambia in its monolingual (English only) education system. Its overarching research question is as follows: What role do Gambian languages play in education in The Gambia?
A project centred around a one-week workshop with five teachers which took place in The Gambia. Teachers involved in this bespoke workshop received support in developing their own multilingual teaching aids (e.g. multilingual posters) and in leading a one-day train the trainer event which took place after the workshop.
