Abstract:

This volume includes research by specialists in minority languages and
multilingual education from five European regions (Basque Country,
Catalonia, Friesland, Ireland and Wales). In their educational contexts,
the minority languages discussed are in contact with other, stronger
languages which are majority languages in each of the regions (Spanish in
the Basque Country and Catalonia, Dutch in Friesland, English in Ireland
and Wales) and also with further languages of international communication.
This issue of AILA Review analyzes the results of research conducted on
bilingual and multilingual programs in which a 'unique' minority language
is used as one of the languages of instruction. Specifically it looks at
the results of research studies on proficiency in the majority, minority
and other languages, academic outcomes and attitudes. It also examines
challenges of teaching through a minority language in a changing world
facing globalization, immigration as well as the spread of English. These
minority language programs have their own characteristics but their
analysis and evaluation provide useful information for other languages in
similar situations.
