WEBINAR Immersion education model in bilingual communities

  • Immersion education is a pedagogical model in which students receive their subject-matter instruction through the medium of a target language. In bilingual communities where a dominant state language coexists with territorial, indigenous, small-state, or unique minority or regional languages, the target language may belong to the second group, with the aim of guaranteeing that their speakers will continue to learn and use their language and transmit it to the next generation.
    Immersion language programs can have multiple incarnations; there is no one program that fits all sites and circumstances. In this Webinar, speakers share with the audience the results of implementing this model in 3 territories with a totally different reality: Catalonia, Ireland, and Finland.
    SPEAKERS: Jasone Cenoz (University of the Basque Country), Vesna Crnić-Grotić (Chair of the Committee of Expert of the ECRML), Mònica Pereña (Department of Education of the Government of Catalonia), Edel Ní Chorráin (Foras na Gaeilge) and Christina Gestrin (Folktinget: the Swedish Assembly of Finland).
