The theme of the meetings held at the palace in Debina was multilingualism - MULTILINGUALISM: RESEARCH AND LANGUAGE LEARNING PERSPECTIVES. The workshop was led by Prof. Anna Ewert, Dr. Iwona Łęska-Drajerczak and Prof. Magdalena Wrembel (the coordinator). Representatives of WA, together with the Deputy Dean for international co-operation and outreach Prof. Radoslaw Dylewski and UAM Vice-Rector for International Cooperation, School of Humanities Prof. Rafal Witkowski, also participated in a special event organized by the participants. The visit at the Faculty of English AMU, in turn, was an opportunity to learn about the experimental research conducted at WA Labs and to meet with representatives of the Student Council. The school was an excellent opportunity to exchange scientific, linguistic and cultural ideas and experiences, and an expression of support for our Ukrainian partner universities.
