Description

Despite Mexico’s implementation of a bilingual model in its tertiary education programmes, this book is the first contribution to knowledge regarding EMI in Mexico.

The author introduces readers to the Mexican higher education context before providing detailed information regarding the technological and polytechnic subsystem, where EMI has been implemented since 2012. The volume details a pilot and case study conducted in Mexican universities as well as the research findings and conclusions. It closes with recommendations, as well as suggestions for further research. The book explores the implications for the continuous professional development and training for lecturers in the current shift to EMI in Bilingual, International, and Sustainable (BIS) universities.

This volume will be of particular interest to researchers in EMI and bilingualism.

'This book depicts a glimpse of EMI practice in Mexico’s higher education institutions, which can enrich the contents of EMI researches in the world’s non-English-speaking countries, especially in Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America.' - Zhiguo Zhang, College of Foreign Languages, Shanghai Maritime University, China.
