    Multilingual learners are students who are developing proficiency in multiple languages. This includes students learning English as an additional language in school (often referred to as ‘English learners’ or ‘English language learners’).

    Multilingual Learners is an expansive term that encapsulates the varied linguistic backgrounds, abilities, learning stages and experiences of students in the education system. ML recognizes that students are developing multiple languages and that students’ proficiency in a language may vary across language dimensions (listening, speaking, reading, and writing).
