Basque Educational Research from an International Perspective
This volume focuses on issues such as the learning, use and assessment of
languages in education, the age factor, the teaching of English as an
international language and multilingualism at the university, in
educational contexts in which several languages are taught either as

issues that are relevant for other contexts.
'Towards Multilingual Education: Basque Educational Research in
International Perspective' is an up to date and comprehensive review of
research involving Basque, Spanish and English in Basque schools. The book
will be of great value to researchers, professionals and students
interested in multilingualism and multilingual education all over the world.
