Abstract

I’ve spent the past two days convening the first-ever Language-on-the-Move workshop at the University of Tehran. The idea was to explore language contact and multilingualism in the 21st century, and I learnt as much as the students did. Apart from gaining new insights into multilingualism, language learning and intercultural communication in Iran, I learnt that the fundamentally negative view of linguistic diversity in the Judeo-Christian tradition is not shared by the Quran.
