When was this brochure published? It looks very old…

We have more and more evidence that Finland has actually failed in providing successful second language education and heritage language education to so-called immigrant children and that we need to find new ways of doing it...

With my research team at Helsinki (Education for diversities/teacher education) we are currently working on these issues. Please check our work.

Best wishes, Fred

Anecdotally, on the flight on the way back I sat next to a young black Finnish woman who reported being literate in both Finnish and Somali :)

> Dear colleagues;
> I am in the process of designing a Master's level graduate course that focuses on bilingual development in early childhood. The course will focus on two major themes: (1) processes of child bilingual development, and (2) second language and/or bilingual instruction in early childhood years. Since our graduates mainly work in kindergarten classrooms, the course will examine these issues from preschool years to early elementary grades. 
> I am currently gathering information by compiling readings, while at the same time, seeking similar course syllabi. In particular, I am looking for relevant textbooks and articles to cover during this 12-week course. I would appreciate if you could share course syllabi, and/or list of readings, textbooks, or articles you might have in mind.
