Aline Germain-Rutherford awarded grant from Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada

Aline Germain-Rutherford (Linguistics) and colleagues from the University of Toronto and York University (in Canada) and University of Grenoble (France) have been awarded a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. The University of Toronto is the lead institution on this collaborative project titled “LINguistic and Cultural DIversity REinvented (LINCDIRE): A digital environment to help learners navigate their trajectories.” The goal of this project is to create a partnership among institutions with expertise in different languages and cultures that will lead to development of a tool for language learners within the context of “plurilingualism” – a theory of language learning that stresses the value of interconnections and synergies of languages at the level of the individual.
