International Mother Language Day 2012

Did you know today is International Mother Language Day?

Although the link between mother-tongue/bilingual/multilingual learning and a quality education is becoming increasingly acknowledged, it remains a neglected area in educational development. One of the barriers is the complexity of implementation (particularly in regions with multiple minority languages). The global appeal of learning through English as a medium of instruction - often confused with learning the English language - is also a very real barrier.

To find out more on the benefits of mother-tongue/multilingual models, MTB-MLE Network's website is a good place to start. Feel free to get in touch for further recommendations.
