Book Information


Title: Towards Multilingual Education
Subtitle: Basque Educational Research from an International Perspective
Written By: Jasone Cenoz
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

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
subjects or languages of instruction. Jasone Cenoz proposes the 'Continua
of Multilingual Education' as a tool to identify different types of
multilingual schools and focuses on Basque educational research to discuss
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.
