A study of the continua of biliteracy. It seeks to offer a comprehensive yet flexible model to guide educators, researchers and policy-makers in designing, carrying out and evaluating educational programmes for the development of bilingual and multilingual learners.


Biliteracy - the use of two or more languages in and around writing - is an inescapable feature of lives and schools worldwide, yet one which many educational policies and practices continue to ignore. The study of the continua of biliteracy in the present volume seeks to offer a comprehensive yet flexible model to guide educators, researchers and policy-makers in designing, carrying out and evaluating educational programmes for the development of bilingual and multilingual learners, each programme adapted to its own specific context, media and contents.
