The significance of multilingual education in the context of integration of minorities into society
Keywords:Multilingual education; CLIL, Georgian Educational System
In the densely inhabited regions of Georgia there ae still issues to be solved regarding learning and teaching of the State language. Despite a number of positive changes made by the Government in recent years, the degree of the command of Georgian in local non-Georgian population is still very low. Sadly, the Georgian educational system has not yet been able to offer a model to the minorities which would ensure the learning of Georgian at a level suitable for a successful communication. Consequently, in order to improve the situation and achieve positive results, it is still urgent to elaborate a more radical and effective policy. Specifically, it is important to think about institutional changes about the model which would drastically change the attitude regarding the language education in schools. A multilingual model of education can not only be a tool for encouraging civic integration but also, a crucial factor in the cognitive development of learners.
