Bradford, Annette – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
The number of universities offering English-medium instruction (EMI) is growing in Japan. Yet, academic programmes taught in English have not reached their full potential.

Jang, Eunjee; Brutt-Griffler, Janina – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019
In a nation where monolingualism predominates, heritage language (HL) has been downplayed as less important in educational contexts in the U.S. Disproportionately little attention has been given to the role of HL in language minority (LM) students' attendance to postsecondary education (PSE) (cf. Brutt-Griffler, Janina, and Manka Varghese, eds.…
