This book is intended as an introduction to different views on Bilingual Education in a globalized world focusing on perspectives from the United States and Spain presented at the First International Conference on Bilingual Education in a Globalized World held at the Instituto Franklin of the Universidad de Alcalá in October 2014. Globalization has increased our expectations of Bilingual Education and also has determined our need to acquire more than one language or culture and appreciate diversity and multiculturalism. More specifically, it is the development and growth of Bilingual Education programs in both Spain and the United States that are explored throughout the selected articles which we hope will allow readers to better understand Bilingual Education in both countries. The book is organized into the following four chapters: 1) Bilingual Education, 2) Dual Language Programs, 3) CLIL/ AICLE Proposals, and 4)Proposals for the Bilingual Classroom.
