This book examines the ideological underpinnings of language-in-education
policies that explicitly focus on adding a new language to the learners'
existing repertoire. It examines policies for foreign languages, immigrant
languages, indigenous languages and external language spread. Each of these
contexts provides for different possible relationships between the language
learner and the target language group and shows how in different polities
different understandings influence how policy is designed. The book
develops a theoretical account of language policies as discursive
constructions of ideological positions and explicates how ideologies are
developed through an examination of case studies from a range of countries.
Each chapter in this book takes the form of a series of three in-depth case
studies in which policies relating to a particular area of
language-in-education policy are examined. Each case examines the language
of policy texts from a critical perspective to deconstruct how
intercultural relationships are projected.
