Getting to the CoRe: A Communicative Receptive approach to language learning and mutual understanding in multilingual academic contexts
Algemene projectbeschrijving

The language barrier in Dutch can hold internationals back from participation in meetings of participatory bodies when Dutch is the main language of administration in the Netherlands. Receptive multilingualism might offer solutions for diverse language situations, as many internationals do not need to develop advanced proficiency in productive (spoken and written) Dutch to communicate effectively. They can develop receptive proficiency in Dutch and use their productive proficiency in English. This study aims to explore to what extent a receptive approach in foreign language use can improve the communicative effectiveness in receptive multilingual settings to create a more inclusive international environment.
