Plurilingual and Pluricultural Tasks


The 10 tasks displayed here were designed for a mixed methods research study exploring plurilingual instruction on an English for Academic Purposes program compared to monolingual instruction. The tasks were delivered by 7 Listening and Speaking instructors in a Canadian university and 129 students with CERF levels between B2 and C1 participated in the study. If you would like to try these tasks with your own students, some modifications to suit your context and students' needs might be needed.
