This essay provides a reflection on the impact of the variety of languages, knowledge and practices in school contexts. The discussion includes textual genres in different writing modalities in academic communicative interactions and sources of multimedia textuality. Linguistic academic performances incorporate native, foreign and second languages. In this complex textuality context, linguistic repertoires and textual genres involve an integral and transversal writing approach. Multiple language manifestations and modalities shape linguistic and disciplinary knowledge within the framework of academic socialization. Language interactions are contextualized in a complex print, digital, multimedia and online communication in academic literacies in school experiences.
