      Abstract:

      At a time when the increasing cultural diversity and population
      mobility of the continent calls for good communication skills, this
      fascinating book features a wealth of data and critical opinion on
      the topic of mother tongue education.

      In the first part of the book, the two editors address central
      cultural, political and educational concerns relating to the mother
      tongue, using some of the findings of their European Commission
      funded research on the changing European classroom. The second part
      presents case study articles by practitioners from nine countries
      which have significant regional or immigrant mother tongue
      populations. These include Welsh in Wales, Catalan and Galician in
      Spain, Turkish and Greek in Germany, Arabic and Corsican in France,
      and Belorussian in Poland, as well as critical accounts of the main
      first language situation in England, Denmark, France, Germany,
      Poland, post-Soviet Russia, and Spain. The concluding part of the
      book looks at language awareness as a possible approach to linguistic
      diversity. It examines the preparation of teachers at all levels, as
      experinced by the editors through their involvement in an in
      international language study group based in Calgary, Cambridge, Mainz
      and Bialystock.

      Teaching the Mother Tongue in a Multilingual Europe is packed with
      original information which will be of use to all teachers and
      educationalists concerned with language.

      Witold Tulasiewicz is Fellow of Wolfson College, University of
      Cambridge and currently Professor of Education at the University of
      Warsaw. Anthony Adams lectures in English and Education at the School
