Multilingual Higher Education : Beyond English Medium Orientations, Paperback / softback Book

Multilingual Higher Education : Beyond English Medium Orientations Paperback / softback

Part of the Bilingual Education & Bilingualism series

Description

The general perception that a good command of English is enough to gain access and to be successful in higher education hides the complexity of learning and teaching in multilingual environments, and this book shows that all higher education environments are multilingual to some extent.

Strategies like translation, interpreting and switching from one language to another not only support learning but also build competence for multilingual professional environments.

Whether institutions focus on widening access to minoritised communities or whether they want to attract more international students, the book argues that a multilingual pedagogy is needed to improve student access and success.

Building on work by Nancy Hornberger, Colin Baker and Ofelia Garcia, the book extends strategies and techniques from bilingual education at school level to multilingual higher education.
