This symposium brings together academics and practitioners from three importantly different but intrinsically related learning contexts for multilingual learners: mainstream schools, international schools, and community/supplementary schools.

There will be the opportunity to examine the commonalities and peculiarities of these contexts, exchange knowledge, and consider ways forward in meeting the needs of multilingual learners which has the potential to radically shape the way we think about and deliver effective provision for our language learners.
