Mari J. Wikhaug Andersen will present an in-progress study centered on multilingualism and multilingual practices in mainstream vocational classes in Norway. The study is based on selected teacher interview data gathered in my PhD fieldwork in the school year 2020-2021. It sheds light on the complex roles and experiences of non-language subject teachers in increasingly diverse and multilingual school settings.
