Fwd: entrevista de Colette Grinevald on the unesco site

"I write then scientific studies for the linguists but also materials for the community, to show them some of what I have learned of their language, to show them their grammar."

"A newer model aiming at more respect for the mother languages is that of the intercultural bilingual education that allows children to be educated in their language longer, while teaching also in the national language, and promotes the mother languages in their cultural context."

"The real challenge of a truly bilingual education is to educate speakers of the dominant language group as well as speakers of indigenous languages about each others’ cultures, that is what the term ‘intercultural’ means really. (...) the problem is not really about languages at all, it’s all about discrimination and respect for other cultures."
