This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
In this volume an international roster of scholars offer theoretical perspectives, research reviews and empirical studies on teaching, learning and language development in immersion education. Editors clearly define the term "immersion" and bring together research from three distinct branches, including foreign language ("one-way"), bilingual ("two-way") and indigenous immersion programs. This collection aims to facilitate cross-context dialogue and knowledge exchange.
