Encouraging multilingualism in an effort to combat socio-cultural stigmas and discrimination

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

Multilingualism within an educational setting also has several other benefits:

1. Improved academic performance - Students who are multilingual have been found to perform better in core academic subjects such as math, science and reading compared with those who do not speak multiple languages; this is because language learning requires the development of analytical skills which can be applied across disciplines when studying different topics.

2. Enhanced creativity - Learning new words from another language unlocks creative thinking patterns as students learn to think outside their own cultural box – allowing them access into unique ways of expressing ideas & problem solving in both verbal & written tasks alike.

3. Increased employment prospects - In today’s increasingly interconnected world employers are looking for individuals who have a strong knowledge base spanning multiple languages; being able to communicate effectively in more than one language could give job applicants the edge they need over competitors when applying for positions or promotions.

4. Reduced social stigma’s & discrimination - Language plays an important role in helping people feel comfortable navigating through foreign environments by giving them access into local customs & beliefs which otherwise would remain inaccessible due its inherent exclusivity – this understanding brings down any foreseeable walls created by preconceived notions associated with specific groups/communities making way for truly inclusive conversations.
