Proposals are invited for papers for an issue of the journal on Language
Planning and Compulsory Foreign Language Studies in Primary/ Elementary
Schools. Abstracts should be about 300 words.
The teaching of foreign languages in primary/elementary schools has not
received the same attention from language planners as in later stages of
education. This volume will examine the issues involved in deciding whether
to make the study of foreign languages compulsory; choosing the language(s)
to be taught, particularly in multicultural nations; whether to support
community or indigenous languages; fostering bilingualism; the effect of
such language teaching on attitudes to other languages; planning for models
of teaching and teacher training; the consequences for planning language
teaching in secondary schools; and the role of language teaching in
supporting governments' social and economic policies.
See http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/journals/journals_cilp.asp for
information about the journal.
