Abstract: In the last 50 years, models of bilingual education with members of national minorities have been at the centre of political, social, and economic debates. Education is an important area where two languages systematically meet. This article introduces researches already made on the planning and performing classes in bilingual primary schools and presents bilingual model used in Slovene primary schools. Performing bilingual primary education in Slovenia is a challenge for teachers because they demand special organization and content to achieve their goals. Bilingual education belongs to the two-way model of preserving two languages and cultures. Bilingual classes are attended by students of two nationalities and mother tongues. Both languages are taught and have an equal status in all subjects. At the same time, both languages have an equal position as means of spoken and written communication inside and outside of the school.

Abstract: Current paper presents the first outcome of an ongoing sociolinguistic research on bilingual intercultural education (EIB) in Argentina. The aim of this study is to identify some elements for an account of the role of language in the social process that involves native people by highlighting the manner in which language usage participate in the struggle for material resources and how social representations and linguistic ideologies are involved in the unequal distribution of resources among indigene groups and in the maintenance of social inequalities. The case of a population that called El Algarrobo has been analyzed. Native young people are trained as teachers and gradually incorporated in schools of the region. In such a process the educational institutions define the roles for native teachers and the place of languages. Results show that the management of languages is linked to the process of social struggle where languages have a key role. The conception of bilingualism, the assessments of native teachers with a competence of Spanish and classroom language practices evidence the distance between meanings in official discourses on EIB in Argentina and the meaning EIB has in day-to-day practice in the classroom and in the school.

Abstract: This article discusses the impact of the advent of primary English on the development of College English in China.

The part of basic English education conventionally assumed by college English will be gone and in its place there will be various content-based English courses, bilingual courses and courses taught entirely in English on different disciplines relevant to the majors of college students.

Abstract: In 2003, there was a significant change in the language policy in theMalaysian education system whereby the Malaysian government decidedto introduce English as a language medium to teach science andmathematics at all levels of the education system in stages. The aim of the policy was to arrest declining standards of English amongMalaysian students. The implementation of this policy was mostcontentious at the primary school level involving two different models of implementation: bilingual model for the Chinese primary school and maximum exposure model for the national school and the Tamil primary school. This paper examines the problems and challenges of implementing the policy of teaching science and mathematics in English in the Malaysian primary schools, which entails learning through a second language. It looks at some of the theoretical constructs pertaining to choice of language as well as learning through a second language. These theoretical constructs offer some perspective lights on the implementation of the policy of teaching science and mathematics in English in the Malaysian primary schools by highlighting its strengths and weaknesses. Based on these theoretical constructs, this paper posits the bilingual model adopted by the Chinese primary schools as a better model to facilitate learning through a second language during the earlyyears of schooling.
