Meeting Description:

Mercator European Research Centre on Multilingualism and Language Learning will
organise a Multilingual Early Language Transmission (MELT) expert seminar in
Leeuwarden, on Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 April, 2010. The project focuses on
four European regions with a regional or minority language: Frisian in the
Netherlands, Breton in France, Welsh in the UK and Swedish in Finland. The MELT
project will do a comparative study on the provisions, approach en available
resources in the different regions. This also means looking at information for
parents on the benefits of multilingual pre-primary education in the own mother
tongue, and the available teaching resources. The study will make
recommendations based on the best examples aiming at the providing parents and
teachers with reliable information for their "informed choice" on bilingual or
multilingual education.
