The European Union is becoming superdiverse and many students today speak multiple languages, not only a countries "official" language(s). In the past, this was seen as a disadvantage, particularly for mathematics learning. Today, we know from years of research that:
Multilinguality can be a resource for understanding mathematics
The project ML2 – Exploiting the Power of Multiple Languages for Mathematics Learning aims to promote the inclusion of multiple languages into the mathematics classroom. Particularly, it aims to promote harnessing learners' multiple languages as a resource for understanding mathematics.
