Language Teaching in the Indian Ocean: Policy and Pedagogy in Three Developing Nations. A Study of the Formation of National Language Policies and Related Educational Programs in the Comoros, Mauritius, and Seychelles.
Richmond, Edmun B.
The findings of a study of language and language education policy in each of the three independent nations of Comoros, Mauritius, and the Seychelles are reported in this book. Each country is discussed separately, focusing on the linguistic and educational history, the existing educational system, and current language policies and programs. Program types covered include elementary and secondary instruction, teacher education programs, adult functional literacy courses, and language instruction by radio. A concluding chapter analyzes the programs in terms of their pedagogical development and usefulness and examines the areas of language education that still need to be addressed. (MSE)
