Constantinou, Filio; Chambers, Lucy; Zanini, Nadir; Klir, Nicole – Language, Culture and Curriculum, 2020
One of the missions of language education internationally is to enable students to use language in a context-appropriate manner.

Van Mensel, Luk; Hiligsmann, Philippe; Mettewie, Laurence; Galand, Benoît – Language, Culture and Curriculum, 2020
Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) programmes are increasingly popular throughout Europe, but are sometimes accused of inducing a selection bias in the pupil population, both through selection mechanisms of the schools themselves and self-selection of the pupils (and/or their parents). As a result, the outcomes of the CLIL approach…

Lin, Angel M. Y. – Language, Culture and Curriculum, 2020
Although people may readily refer to Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the U.S. as Anglophone countries, recent demographic and sociolinguistic profiles of these countries indicate that they are actually both Anglophone and multilingual, and in some of their cities, even more multilingual than Anglophone. Recent research also indicates…
