Another year almost gone and the Language on the Move team is getting ready to pack up for the year. Before we do, we are happy to share a review of this year’s research blogging with our readers. Please browse through the list below and enjoy a year’s worth of reflections on intercultural communication, multilingualism and language learning in the contexts of migration and globalization.

We will be back in the New Year for another round of diverse, stimulating and engaging essays in sociolinguistics.

In the meantime, we wish all our readers peaceful holidays and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016!

    I appreciate all the work done by the team of language on the move in year 2015. I am living in a city in which people speak six or seven different languages. I believe that language is power to break the communication barrier between two different ethnically diverse groups. I work as an administrator of a college only for girls belonging from all the diverse groups. It is very difficult to implement the justice socially to every group and have an unbiased policy. It is very important to live peacefully in the rapidly changing world that every ethnic group earn respect equally. With the advancement of technology the use of national language is decreasing. So there is a need to keep it in its actual norm and form. I will anxiously wait the book of INGRID PILLER. I also want to collaborate the team by any possible way. I belong to Balochistan province of Pakistan.
