Multilingualism and Mobility in Europe

Policies and Practices


Kristine Horner, Ingrid de Saint-Georges and Jean-Jacques Weber

How do individuals experience multilingualism and mobility in the context of Europeanization and globalisation? The contributors explore language-in-education policies and family language policies, as well as the complex interface between multilingualism and space. They provide fresh insights on key issues in sociolinguistics, multilingualism and language policy via discussion of rich qualitative data. The multiple sites analysed in the chapters are located in France, Germany, Luxembourg, Hungary and Moldova. Some of the chapters dealing with France, including one about the overseas French territory of La Réunion, are written in French.

Early bilingual education in Alsace: The one language/one teacher policy in question



The chapter looks at the one language/one person policy as it is implemented in the bilingual education model in Alsace, France. Building on previous research regarding the monoglossic ideology of many bilingual programs, we argue for a different bilingual policy in early childhood education. Our study is based on one bilingual kindergarten class in an école maternelle in the vicinity of Strasbourg.
