What is multilingualism to you?

This voxpop interviewed both people in Groningen and our families and experts about their thoughts on multilingualism.

The views on what multilingualism is and what is means for individuals and societies differ greatly. Do you need to speak several languages at a high level to be a multilingual? Or is multilingualism the coexistence of different languages in one geographical space?

We have asked random people on the street about their opinion, but also the families in the course and the experts we have interviewed.
