From linguistic diversity to Plurilingual education: Guide for the development of language education policies in Europe (2007)

The aim of the Guide is to offer an analytical instrument which can serve as a reference document for the formulation or reorganisation of language teaching in member states. Its purpose is to provide a response to the need to formulate language policies to promote plurilingualism and diversification in a planned manner so that decisions are coherently linked.

Accordingly, the Guide does not promote any particular language education policy but attempts to identify the challenges and possible responses in the light of common principles. It is intended for those who influence, formulate and implement language education policy at any level. It presents approaches to the development of policies rather than policies as such and is designed to accommodate the needs of different education contexts.
