Mother Tongue-Based
Multilingual Education
The Key to Unlocking SDG 4 - Quality Education For All
SDG4
Mother tongue-based multilingual education (MTB-MLE) =
education that begins in the language that the learner speaks
most fluently, and then gradually introduces other languages.
7,097
known living languages
Equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all is only possible
when education responds to and reflects the multilingual nature of the
society. Children, youth and adults require learning opportunities that
are relevant to their lives and needs, in and through their own
languages.
Since SDG 4 is so foundational to the other Sustainable Development
Goals, without mother tongue-based multilingual education the other
16 goals will remain unachievable.
We live in a multilingual world. People use different languages for
different things; it’s their normal way of life. Yet, most education
systems ignore this multilingual reality.
Quality Education - Ensure inclusive
and equitable quality education and promote
lifelong learning opportunities for all

Hello
SDG4
How MTB-MLE contributes to
Youhavetospeakalanguagebeforeyoucanlearntoreadandwritethat
language(Targets4.1,4.4,4.6)
We are born to speak, but we learn to read. Oral language ability is the most
reliable predictor for literacy in that language. Many youth and adults who
have missed out on the opportunity to learn to read and write will only be
able to succeed if lifelong learning opportunities are provided in the
languages they know best.
Earlychildhoodeducationofhighqualityisonlypossibleinthechild’sfirst
language(Targets4.2,4.5,4.7)
Early childhood is the most important developmental phase of any human
being. Children at this stage learn best in a language they already know. By
providing learning opportunities in the languages that children use at home
we are also investing in individuals’ future development opportunities.
Welltrainedandsupportedmultilingualteachersboost learners’
performances(Targets4.1,4.5,4.c)
Inclusive training and management policies that diversify the composition of
teachers are an urgent need in most education systems. Teachers who
collaborate with local educators and community elders can better
understand the language and culture of learners, leading to more relevant
and improved learning outcomes. Where teachers are from non-dominant
communities, they also serve as strong positive role models for learners. At
the same time, using children’s home languages enables parents and other
community members to better support children’s learning.
MTB-MLEenableslife-longlearning(Targets4.2,4.4)
Learning in a learner’s home language provides a solid foundation on which
other languages and skills can be successfully built. This prepares learners better
to access higher education opportunities and the technical and vocational
skills necessary for employment. Using learners’ own languages in education
provides opportunities for all people to contribute to their full potential and be
active participants in breaking out of the poverty cycle.
MTB-MLEhelpstoaddressgenderinequalitybyallowinggirlsandwomento
engagefullyintheirownlearning(Targets4.1,4.3,4.5,4.6)
Globally, a disproportionate number of illiterate people are girls and women.
In places where the home language is not used in school this is even more
acute, with 30-50 percent fewer girls likely to enroll in school than boys. Given
an opportunity to learn and develop in a classroom where their languages are
used, girls and boys can also begin to redefine their role and norms within
their own cultures.
Respectforculturalandlinguisticdiversityleadstopeace,socialcohesionand
sustainabledevelopment(Targets4.5,4.7)
Peace, social cohesion and global citizenship are only possible when
people are confident in their own identity and have opportunities to participate
in finding solutions to their own problems. Policies and practices that embrace
cultural and linguistic diversity are essential for healthy and sustainable
social systems and ecosystems, and incorporating local knowledge
systems with innovative approaches through strong partnerships leads to
more effective care for our world.
MTB-MLE is a realistic and cost-effective way to make significant
progress towards SDG 4. Successful pilot projects in Asia-Pacific
continue to contribute to change in language policies that respect
and encourage the diversity of communities.
4.1 By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and
quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and
effective learning outcomes
4.2 By 2030, ensure that all girls and boys have access to quality early
childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they
are ready for primary education
4.3 By 2030, ensure equal access for all women and men to affordable
and quality technical, vocational and tertiary education, including
university
4.4 By 2030, substantially increase the number of youth and adults who
have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for
employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship
4.5 By 2030, eliminate gender disparities in
education and ensure equal access to all
levels of education and vocational training
for the vulnerable, including persons with
disabilities, indigenous peoples and
children in vulnerable situations
4.6 By 2030, ensure that all youth and a
substantial proportion of adults, both men
and women, achieve literacy and
numeracy
4.7 By 2030, ensure that all learners acquire the knowledge and skills
needed to promote sustainable development, including, among others,
through education for sustainable development and sustainable
lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace
and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural
diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development
4.c By 2030, substantially increase the supply of qualified teachers,
including through international cooperation for teacher training in
developing countries, especially least developed countries and small
island developing States

Mother tongue-based multilingual education the key to unlocking SDG 4 quality Education for All.

  • 1. Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education The Key to Unlocking SDG 4 - Quality Education For All
  • 2. SDG4 Mother tongue-based multilingual education (MTB-MLE) = education that begins in the language that the learner speaks most fluently, and then gradually introduces other languages. 7,097 known living languages Equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all is only possible when education responds to and reflects the multilingual nature of the society. Children, youth and adults require learning opportunities that are relevant to their lives and needs, in and through their own languages. Since SDG 4 is so foundational to the other Sustainable Development Goals, without mother tongue-based multilingual education the other 16 goals will remain unachievable. We live in a multilingual world. People use different languages for different things; it’s their normal way of life. Yet, most education systems ignore this multilingual reality. Quality Education - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all 2.3 40% lack access to education in their own languages billion people Most children grow up in a context where more than one language is spoken Hello
  • 3. SDG4 How MTB-MLE contributes to Youhavetospeakalanguagebeforeyoucanlearntoreadandwritethat language(Targets4.1,4.4,4.6) We are born to speak, but we learn to read. Oral language ability is the most reliable predictor for literacy in that language. Many youth and adults who have missed out on the opportunity to learn to read and write will only be able to succeed if lifelong learning opportunities are provided in the languages they know best. Earlychildhoodeducationofhighqualityisonlypossibleinthechild’sfirst language(Targets4.2,4.5,4.7) Early childhood is the most important developmental phase of any human being. Children at this stage learn best in a language they already know. By providing learning opportunities in the languages that children use at home we are also investing in individuals’ future development opportunities. Welltrainedandsupportedmultilingualteachersboost learners’ performances(Targets4.1,4.5,4.c) Inclusive training and management policies that diversify the composition of teachers are an urgent need in most education systems. Teachers who collaborate with local educators and community elders can better understand the language and culture of learners, leading to more relevant and improved learning outcomes. Where teachers are from non-dominant communities, they also serve as strong positive role models for learners. At the same time, using children’s home languages enables parents and other community members to better support children’s learning. MTB-MLEenableslife-longlearning(Targets4.2,4.4) Learning in a learner’s home language provides a solid foundation on which other languages and skills can be successfully built. This prepares learners better to access higher education opportunities and the technical and vocational skills necessary for employment. Using learners’ own languages in education provides opportunities for all people to contribute to their full potential and be active participants in breaking out of the poverty cycle. MTB-MLEhelpstoaddressgenderinequalitybyallowinggirlsandwomento engagefullyintheirownlearning(Targets4.1,4.3,4.5,4.6) Globally, a disproportionate number of illiterate people are girls and women. In places where the home language is not used in school this is even more acute, with 30-50 percent fewer girls likely to enroll in school than boys. Given an opportunity to learn and develop in a classroom where their languages are used, girls and boys can also begin to redefine their role and norms within their own cultures. Respectforculturalandlinguisticdiversityleadstopeace,socialcohesionand sustainabledevelopment(Targets4.5,4.7) Peace, social cohesion and global citizenship are only possible when people are confident in their own identity and have opportunities to participate in finding solutions to their own problems. Policies and practices that embrace cultural and linguistic diversity are essential for healthy and sustainable social systems and ecosystems, and incorporating local knowledge systems with innovative approaches through strong partnerships leads to more effective care for our world. MTB-MLE is a realistic and cost-effective way to make significant progress towards SDG 4. Successful pilot projects in Asia-Pacific continue to contribute to change in language policies that respect and encourage the diversity of communities.
