Multilingual Manchester

Partner project


Multilingual Manchester (MLM) is a research unit based at the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures (The University of Manchester). MLM aims to raise awareness of Manchester’s linguistic diversity and study the practical challenges and immense potential language diversity brings. We support student research and run a student volunteer scheme, as well as working together with public service providers, schools and community-based organisations. Find us on Twitter: @MLManchester.

Since 2015 we have organised and participated in many celebrations of Manchester’s language diversity, running activities that invited people to realise how multilingualism and multiculturalism are facts of everyday life that have been with us for a long time. Here you can find a selection of them:
