This presentation unpacks the concept of ‘translanguaging’ for practitioners. It has become popular recently, but it can also be confusing. For example, how does it relate to bilingualism, plurilingualism, or code-switching? What does in mean in practice for teaching multilingual learners? Drawing upon current research sources and analysis of policy documents, principles of translanguaging are clarified with attention to what teachers needs to know. Practical teaching tips are provided for drawing upon the full scope of students’ repertoires to advance their language development.
