The LATL-lab organises and promotes research and education about learning and teaching languages at the University of Canterbury. Our work is about children and adults learning and using languages at various ages in formal education as well as in other contexts. A particular interest is the interaction of language and technology and promoting multilingualism in any form. Our suite of courses and programmes in learning and teaching languages caters to the needs and interests of language learners and teachers concerned with indigenous and migrant languages anywhere. Read about them in our LATL website.

A Better Start – The National Science Challenge

a better start

Science and Innovation Minister Steven Joyce successfully launched the $34.7M National Science Challenge “A Better Start- E Tipu e Rea” in Auckland on February 19th 2016. The purpose behind this initiative is to predict, prevent and treat obesity, learning and mental health problems in children and teenagers.

Our study, Emergent Bilinguals in the Digital World, is led by Associate Professor Una Cunningham and Distinguished Professor Niki Davis. Our focus is developing strategies to support children who are growing up as bilingual in English and Te Reo Māori or Samoan.

Further details about A Better Start at the University of Canterbury can be found on the Challenge website.
