BASICS OF BILINGUAL EDUCATION

introduction.jpgiNTRODUCTION



1.1 . What is bilingual education?

Bilingual education is a form of education in which information is presented to the students in two (or more) languages. Technically, any educational system that utilizes more than one language is bilingual. This means that many, if not most, school programs are bilingual, in at least a literal sense of the word. What differentiates various programs that are toted as ‘bilingual’ is the degree to which multiple languages are used.

Very frequently, the expression "Bilingual Education" refers to a series of programs designed and carried out to help students whose mother tongue is not the official or mainstream language of their school context. That's why both educators and researchers are using more and more the term "CLIL" instead of bilingualism, to refer to the learning practices in which parts of some curricular subjects are taught in the target language (L2, L3...) in order to help students improve their competence in the communicative use of that or those target language(s)
