Bilingualism and British Education: The Dimensions of Diversity.
Centre for Information on Language Teaching, London (England).
This compilation of articles deals with practical questions of bilingualism that appear to be important to the development of education in Britain. The conference for which the papers were originally prepared concentrated on three general aspects: the existence of many thousands of bilingual children in Britain whose native languages are largely ignored educationally; the examples of planned or structured bilingual education offered in Wales; and the relationship between the techniques of foreign language teaching and the notion and reality of bilingualism. The articles include: (1) "Bilingualism and British Education," by G.E. Perren; (2) "Distribution of Linguistic Minorities in Britain," by Kiran Campbell-Platt; (3) "Provision by Minorities for Language Maintenance," by Verity Khan; (4) "Bilingualism in the Schools of Wales," by Derrick Sharp; (5) "Bilingual Education in Wales," by Eric Evans; (6) "Bilingual Education in Wales: Secondary School Organisation," by Gerald R. Morgan; (7) "Bilingualism in Bradford," by Eunice B. Beaumont; (8) "Bilingualism in Birmingham," by R.D. Chapman; (9) "Foreign Language Teaching and Bilingualism," by C.J. Dodson; and (10) "Some Conclusions: Reports by Working Parties." Appended are a list of current research in Britain on bilingualism, multilingualism, and bilingual education; a selected bibliography; a list of conference participants; and a list of other publications by CILT.
