Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

A critical reality of contemporary education in a globalised world is the
growing cultural, racial and linguistic diversity in schools and the issues
involved in educating increasing numbers of students who are still learning
the dominant language. This poses extraordinary challenges for second and
foreign language teachers in many countries, where such students must
engage with the mainstream curriculum in a new language. What do these
increasingly plurilingual and multicultural classrooms look like? And how
do language teachers address the challenges of such diverse classrooms?
This book brings together a group of well-recognised language education
scholars who present their research in a range of international settings.
They focus on the key areas of pedagogy, language policy and curriculum and
exemplify new research directions in the field.
