Metalinguistic Awareness: Your Multilingual Superpower


Metalinguistic awareness is a crucial component of metacognition, which refers to the ability to think about and regulate one's own cognitive processes. This particular skill involves reflecting upon and making strategic choices about language use in a given context. People with metalinguistic awareness can think about language rules, sounds, and meanings in a way that helps them communicate effectively and learn languages more easily. For multilingual learners, this awareness is a valuable asset! Explore our resources across the domains of reading, writing, listening, and speaking to take your language skills to the next level.
