Multilingual Universities in South Africa : Reflecting Society in Higher Education Paperback / softback

Edited by Liesel Hibbert, Christa van der Walt

Part of the Bilingual Education & Bilingualism series

Description

Focusing on the use of African languages in higher education, this book showcases South African higher education practitioners' attempts to promote a multilingual ethos in their classes.

It is a first-time overview of multilingual teaching and learning strategies that have been tried and tested in a number of higher education institutions in South Africa.

Despite language-in-education policies that extol the virtues of multilingualism, practice remains oriented towards English-only learning and teaching.

In the multilingual contexts of local campuses, this book shows how students and lecturers attempt to understand their multiple identities and use the available languages to create multilingual learning environments.
