Description

The vast majority of the world’s population is multilingual, but children aren’t always educated in their home language or even the primary language of their community. This chapter discusses the need for bilingual education and the various ways multilingualism works in education, including transitional bilingual education, dual language immersion programs, and translanguaging.
