Transferable Vocabulary is a research collaboration led by Dr Anna Tsakalaki between Oxford Brookes University and the University of Reading, funded by Creative Multilingualism (OWRI) and the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM) at the University of Reading. The project aims to explore teaching of mathematical vocabulary to Year 4 and Year 5 pupils through arts and storytelling.

Anna was due to present her work at our New Perspectives on Modern Languages Research conference in March 2020; however, as the event was postponed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she has kindly provided her presentation to be published on the website.
