Abstract/Notes: Multilingualism and Montessori education are inextricably bound together. Montessori pedagogy has proliferated worldwide and is practiced in countless languages, and the Montessori classroom supports the natural and effortless capacity of the young child to acquire language(s). The ability to use hundreds of materials, see and touch real objects, and use explicit vocabulary are foundational ways the Montessori classroom supports language acquisition. While arguing for a large-scale database to understand the extent of second language models in Montessori programs, this chapter provides real-world examples of the range of second language acquisition programs in Montessori classrooms.

Abstract/Notes: This article is based on a study of an ‘English-medium’ preschool programme for underprivileged children. The diverse linguistic backgrounds of the teachers and students prompted an enquiry into how multiple languages would be negotiated in the setting and how comprehension, learning and communication would occur given that none of the children came from English-speaking homes. The article identifies and interprets key features of verbal language that were observed in the setting and articulates implications for educational practice.
