Mozambique: vers la reconnaissance de la réalité plurilingue par l'introduction de l'éducation bilingue

Abstract : Since 2003, a number of African languages have been introduced in the Mozambican education system. This constitutes an innovation and a clear break in relation to past policies, which promoted Portuguese as the language of national unity and saw African 'dialects' as potential carriers of ethnic division.
This new education strategy, which still evokes misgivings within the urban intelligentsia, has proved popular in rual areas among a population which sees for the first time its language and culture afforded official recognition.
