Prepare: Task 2
Defining the concept of linguistic citizenship is multifaceted as it can be interpreted differently. For some people, speaking the predominant language of the country where you live makes you a good citizen. Others, on the other hand, believe that speaking the common language of where you live is very substantive in your citizenship journey, but being proficient in a language does not necessarily mean you are a good citizen.
By completing this activity, you will gain an understanding of how language can be used to categorise citizens according to their linguistic affiliations.
Stop and Reflect:
Using the following template, read the anecdotes which show how linguistic citizenship can be interpreted differently and answer the reflective questions.
