Abstract

Most students at German schools are multilingual nowadays – especially due to migrant backgrounds, bilingual parental homes, and foreign language teaching at school. Multilingual didactics attempts to utilize the potential of these multilingual competencies for language teaching. This article draws up an interim assessment of the current state of research on didactic realization, effects, and practical implementation of multilingual didactics.
