This ReN deals with a research area which has developed during the past decennia and is now gaining increasing attention in our globalised world: multilingualism and multiple language acquisition and use. We research these areas from different perspectives: psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, intercultural communication, cognitive and social psychology, pedagogy, education policy, language policy. Some researchers focus on macro-aspects of multilingualism (minority groups, immigration, challenges for multilingual countries, education, justice and healthcare), others focus on micro-aspects, namely individual differences and their potential foreign language teaching implications.
