Russian Language Unit Takes Part in the PIM project

 

The project is funded by European Union Regional Development Fund Central Baltic Programme 2014-2020

Project period: 01.09.2015 – 31.08.2017
Total budget: 201 964 euros
ERDF: 164 945 euros

Overview

The PIM project aims at supporting bilingual education for children in Russian-speaking minority groups in Estonia, Finland and Latvia by developing parent involvement models for bilingual learning process.

The main responsibility in bilingual education in the partner countries has been on the teachers and schools. The project will enable the Russian-speaking school communities to improve their home-school cooperation. In practice the project will combine traditional models of parent involvement with bilingual education specific themes and methods. The project will also take into account the context of old and new immigrants.

As a result of the project, home-school cooperation and awareness about multicultural education are both expected to increase. The process, in turn, will have a direct impact on broader Russian-speaking communities gathered around the schools in the same town, and the same region. Through the schools, the changes can be initiated from the grass root level, but the overall influence will have an impact on the whole society.

In search of the center and periphery: Linguistic attitudes, minorities, and landscapes in the Central Balkans
Maxim Makartsev & Max Wahlström (eds.)

This book is an attempt to capture and analyze aspects of multilingualism, the situation of minority languages and their speakers, and non-standard linguistic variation in Albania, Greece, and Macedonia. Widespread, stable, mutual multilingualism is widely thought to be one of the preconditions for the rise of the Balkan Sprachbund, characterized by grammatical convergence among the languages. The Central Balkans, with the Lakes Ohrid and Prespa as its geographical point of orientation, remains to this day ethnically and linguistically the most diverse part of the Balkans and displays a particularly high concentration of convergent linguistic features. The articles in this volume examine today’s linguistic diversity and its relation to the historical multilingualism in the region from a wide variety of perspectives.
