Is two-way immersion education associated with social and intercultural benefits? This book examines social and intercultural benefits of bilingual or two-way immersion (TWI) schooling in
Staatliche Europa-Schule Berlin (SESB). The author uses quantitative methods to compare
SESB with mainstream education and identifies a series of statistically significant differences between the two. These findings contribute to the well-structured argument that
SESB programmes can play a role in promoting social integration and group cohesiveness within schools and potentially in the wider society. The author also makes a number of recommendations for stakeholders and policymakers, and suggests that
SESB may indeed serve as a useful model for other multilingual areas of Europe.
