Prof. Navin Singh will present on his book, Multilingual Trends in a Globalized World, and discuss evolving language education trends, multilingualism in terms of prospects and challenges, by drawing on examples and case studies from around the world.

Over the past few decades, significant economic and political changes have taken place across the globe, placing a significant mark on language teaching and learning practices. There is a clear movement towards multilingual practices in the world, which is also evident in the title of UNESCO 2003 education position paper, “Education in a Multilingual World.”

With globalization, the focus of language education has shifted from monolingualism, towards bilingualism and multilingualism. Multilingual practices have become norms rather than the exception in most parts of the world today. Nonetheless, most existing books on language education in general, and books on bilingualism and multilingualism in particular, have largely ignored or merely eluded to the concept of globalization and its influences on language education policies and practices.

This book is an attempt to fill this gap, with a special focus on cultural and linguistic aspects of globalization, referencing multiannual trends in a globalized world.
