Bialek, Michal; Fugelsang, Jonathan – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
Bilinguals who consider moral problems in their foreign language tend to endorse causing harm to others if that leads to good outcomes more than they do in their native language. Cavar and Tytus [2018. "Moral Judgement and Foreign Language Effect: When the Foreign Language Becomes the Second Language. Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural…

Bradford, Annette – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
The number of universities offering English-medium instruction (EMI) is growing in Japan. Yet, academic programmes taught in English have not reached their full potential.

Paquet, Roseline G.; Levasseur, Catherine – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
Montreal, the largest city in the province of Quebec, Canada, is where most newcomers settle down. Many will attend one of the 'francization' (French as a second language) courses offered by the provincial government. Learning French and its adoption as a common language are essential conditions to gain social inclusion through participation in…

Hornsby, Michael – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
Discourses which seek to position different speakers/users of Breton through the use of labels such as 'traditional', 'new', 'learner', 'néo-bretonnant', 'brittophone', etc. draw on persistent essentialist ideologies of language and create, in the process, contested elites and counter-elites in Breton-speaking networks. These discourses can be…

De Backer, Fauve; Slembrouck, Stef; Van Avermaet, Piet – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
A challenge in designing tests is ensuring fairness for all test takers. Pupils who are not yet sufficiently proficient in the language of schooling taking a test that was designed for native speakers is unfair, since they will not be able to demonstrate their true abilities (Abedi, J., and C. Lord. 2001. "The Language Factor in Mathematics…

Therefore, this longitudinal case study investigates the…
