Septembre 2018 :: Radiocast #008 – „Turmbau zu Babel. Mehr+Sprachig oder Sprachverwirrung?“


The Tower of Babel. Multilingual or Multiconfused?
If you take a look on Google Trends you can see that the online search for the word “multilingualism” has increased. In asian and african countries the use of more than one language has long been part of the every day life, where as in Europe multilingualism has been a topic of discussion for years. But the
question is – what exactly is multilingualism and how does it appear in the 21. century?
This show tries to find some answers to those questions by showing different views from different disciplines and countries.
