Children and young people can play an important role in the migration to a new country by translating and interpreting for family, peers and the local community. This is sometimes known as child language brokering.

This event will introduce a Teachers Handbook to use in secondary schools covering a variety of topics related to the practice of child language brokering and multilingualism as well as a video game that can be used within schools to explore the social and emotional dilemmas that young language brokers might face.

The webinar is aimed at school educators, EAL coordinators and academic scholars and students interested working in area of multilingualism.
