L'education bilingue: Pour quoi faire? (Bilingual Education: For What Purpose?). Cahiers du CMIEB, Number 11.
Borga, Charlotte, Ed.
This issue contains five articles on aspects of bilingualism and bilingual education, as well as documentation on the "Centre Mondial d'Information sur l'Education Bilingue" (CMIEB). The introductory article presents reasons for being able to communicate in more than one language in the world as it is today, and proposes that bilingual education is a means toward overcoming the language barrier. The other articles deal with: (1) a definition of bilingual education as teaching in two languages as required by political, geographic, or social conditions in a given country; (2) a history of "Le Monde Bilingue," the parent organization to CMIEB; (3) passage from "Le Monde Bilingue" to bilingual education in the interest of greater international comprehension; and (4) majority and minority languages and the necessity of bilingual education. In addition to these articles, there is some documentation on the purpose and activities of CMIEB and communication between "twin cities" and bilingual education. An appendix consisting of questionnaires and a list of addresses concludes the issue. (AMH)
