One of the great riches offered by multiculturalism is in its linguistic diversity; This diversity is the coexistence of different languages in a given geographical area. Catalonia is one of the regions that has a great own linguistic diversity of the territory such as Catalan, Spanish and Aranes language. On the other hand, welcomes almost 300 languages from around the world. It is for this reason that multilingualism is a reality that brings flexibility and diversity to the way we see the world.
Most students in Catalonia are bilingual or trilingual. Many families from other countries are looking for their children / as have access to learning and knowledge of the source language as a source of wealth and made it necessary for personal development and identity of the child / a. Each language has unique knowledge that only can transfer your speakers; strengthen the transmission of these languages is a way to protect their wealth and their way of seeing and interpreting the world.
According to the Statistical Institute of Catalonia (2018), the population from Morocco occupies 19% of people of diverse backgrounds residents in Catalonia. For this reason, there is great demand and interest in their children / as born in Spain have the opportunity to access learning Arabic and how to convey knowledge of the official language of the country of origin of their parents.
It is recalled that many families from Morocco have their own linguistic diversity of the country, therefore we cannot generalize Arabic as mother tongue of all children / as studying and are interested in this language, as a large percentage of these students have the Rif or Amazigh as their mother tongue. On the other hand, we must highlight the interest, albeit in a small percentage, from the local population that their children / as learn Arabic as maternal or paternal language of either parent.
