Obwohl sie nicht immer berücksichtigt wird – Mehrsprachigkeit ist schon lange Normalität im weltweiten DaF-Unterricht. Dabei bezieht sich Mehrsprachigkeit sowohl auf die Lernenden selbst, da sie in den meisten Fällen bereits Englisch gelernt haben und über Kenntnisse in verschiedenen Erstsprachen verfügen, als auch auf die Mehrsprachigkeit im deutschsprachigen Raum.
