Scottish Languages Review Issue 32
This edition really is a must-read! The incidental theme emerging from all five contributions is ‘transformation’. From the school sector, Sara Davidson and Essi d’Almeida write about their respective efforts to combat negative attitudes to languages – with startlingly different results. Turning to the university sector, Angela Gayton outlines the aims and plans of the very aptly named MEITS (Multilingualism: Empowering Individuals Transforming Societies) research project. Johanna Watzinger-Tharp & Jamie Leite, on the other hand, tell us about the way in which the dual-language immersion approach has already started to turn around monolingual mind-sets in the state of Utah, U.S. Finally, we hear from a group of undergraduate students of German at the University of Edinburgh and their work with refugees during a three-week placement in Bad Kreuznach, Germany – and the transformation they themselves underwent in the process.
