Our research focuses on improving educational processes in the transition from primary to secondary education and exploring how this affects the quality of education. In order to assess this, we look at the levels of mastery of the target languages in secondary schools in order to create a student monitoring system for the languages Dutch, English and Frisian.
Relationship with education
Frisian and Multilingualism in Education and Parenting is a joint department within NHL University of Applied Sciences and Stenden University of Applied Sciences and is affiliated with Stenden’s School of Education. If you take an interest in multilingualism in education and parenting and are a student at NHL or Stenden, you are welcome to contribute ideas for research and innovative projects. Students from other institutions and programmes are welcome as well.
The department also contributes to education itself, having developed a minor in Multilingualism and a Master’s programme in Multilingualism at Groningen University.
