It is stipulated that what teachers think frequently guides their behaviour in the classroom and is critical to the understanding of their decision-making processes. As expected, it may be anticipated that L3 teachers’ beliefs about multilingualism are also central, because they affect the manner in which a language learner’s multilingualism is facilitated in the educational setting.

L3 foreign language teachers’ beliefs about multilingualism and multilingual pedagogies. I will draw on the data collected through focus-group discussions conducted with 2 cohorts of Polish L3 teachers (of German, French and Spanish). A careful analysis, qualitative in nature, revealed a few recurring themes, e.g. language awareness, prior linguistic knowledge, cross-linguistic influence, the use of multilingual pedagogies, and the auxiliary role of L2 English. Their meticulous examination sheds light on the urgency of training teachers in the use of multilingual pedagogies.
