Abstract:

At a time when the increasing cultural diversity and population mobility of
the continent calls for good communication skills, this fascinating book
features a wealth of data and critical opinion on the topic of mother
tongue education.

In the first part of the book, the two editors address central cultural,
political and educational concerns relating to the mother tongue, using
some of the findings of their European Commission funded research on the
changing European classroom. The second part presents case study articles
by practitioners from nine countries which have significant regional or
immigrant mother tongue populations. These include Welsh in Wales, Catalan
and Galician in Spain, Turkish and Greek in Germany, Arabic and Corsican in
France, and Belorussian in Poland, as well as critical accounts of the main
first language situation in England, Denmark, France, Germany, Poland,
post-Soviet Russia, and Spain. The concluding part of the book looks at
language awareness as a possible approach to linguistic diversity. It
examines the preparation of teachers at all levels, as experinced by the
editors through their involvement in an in international language study
group based in Calgary, Cambridge, Mainz and Bialystock.

Teaching the Mother Tongue in a Multilingual Europe is packed with original
information which will be of use to all teachers and educationalists
concerned with language.

Witold Tulasiewicz is Fellow of Wolfson College, University of Cambridge
and currently Professor of Education at the University of Warsaw.
Anthony Adams lectures in English and Education at the School of Education
in the University of Cambridge.
