Editorial Reviews

«Alles in allem liefert das Buch einen spannenden Blick darauf, was alles möglich ist, wenn politischer Wille, finanzielle Mittel, dynamische Schulstrukturen, engagierte Lehrkräfte und interessierte SchülerInnen aufeinandertreffen, und stellt einen interessanten Beitrag zum Forschungsstand über die Rolle bilingualer Unterrichtsformen bei der Förderung von Mehrsprachigkeit und Plurilingualismus in Europa dar.» (Elisabeth Wielander, Info DaF 2/3, 2013)
