Back, Michele; Han, Mihyun; Weng, Shih-Chieh – Language and Education, 2020
Despite a large body of literature on foreign language learning anxiety and emerging research on translanguaging, research on the role of translanguaging on the socioemotional experiences of emergent multilingual learners (EMLLs) is minimal at best. Yet the persistent academic and emotional difficulties of EMLLs in K-12 US schools urge a closer…

Kang, Hyun-Sook; Pacheco, Mark Barba – Language and Education, 2020
While study abroad (SA) has long been considered an opportunity for language learning, relatively little research has investigated how short-term SA programs hosted by Anglophone countries support varied aspects of sojourners' language learning. To address this gap, the current study examined how 10 college students from a Korean university…

English language education in the region of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain) has undergone significant change in the last decade with the rapid implementation of different types of CLIL-based Spanish-English bilingual programs.

Kesler, Ted – Language and Education, 2020
Standardized writing assessments based in linear progressions position teachers for deficit views of young children's emergent writing development.

McKinney, Carolyn; Tyler, Robyn – Language and Education, 2019
Language ideologies profoundly shape and constrain the use of language as a resource for learning in 'multilingual' or linguistically diverse classrooms. In this paper, we draw attention in particular to the ideology of languages as stable, boundaried objects and to the colonial invention of African languages. Against this backdrop, we analyse an…

Ollerhead, Sue – Language and Education, 2019
Despite the growing numbers of migrant students enrolling in Australian secondary schools, and an official acknowledgment of their complex support and learning needs, there has been little policy focus on the pedagogical changes that need to be made by teachers to accommodate these needs. There is also little understanding of the depth and…

Prinsloo, Mastin; Krause, Lara-Stephanie – Language and Education, 2019
