Summary

This book argues that a multilingual approach to higher education is imperative in an increasingly globalised education environment. Higher education cannot afford a narrow focus on English language proficiency; this book addresses the need to acknowledge other languages explicitly in classroom instruction and student learning to improve student success, to widen access and to internationalise institutions.
