Migrant children usually attend weekend community-based language schools to learn their heritage languages, but research shows that the role these schools play goes beyond language maintenance to include supporting integration, social mobility and well-being. What is the impact of complementary schooling on the individual and the society? This panel brings together policy makers, community leaders, researchers, practitioners, parents and heritage speakers to explore this issue. The session starts with a short presentation on the project ‘An oral history of the community language schools in Cambridge 1950-2020’ and is followed by a panel discussion. This research seminar will be led by Dr Yongcan Liu (Education).

This talk is part of the The Centre for the Study of Global Human Movement series.
