Children can and often speak more than one or even two languages at home. For example, they may speak one language with their mother, another with their father and a third with their grandparents. Although there is overwhelming evidence that children learn best in and through their mother tongues, millions of children around the world receive education in a different language.
This is usually the dominant language of the country they live in. In the case of former colonies, this may not be the language spoken in the community at all, but the language of the former colonial power, for example English, French, Arabic, Dutch and Spanish.

There are bilingual education programmes that aim at teaching children a second language at no expense to their first language. In such programmes equal importance is given to learning in and through both languages and children learn how to take full advantage of their multilingualism and biliteracy. The majority of schools however offer education only in and through one language. Children who are not fluent speakers of the school language may be offered some form of language support or no support at all.
Use of Language Across the Secondary Curriculum
Children lose or leave behind their mother tongues and use only the language of the school. A third option, increasingly popular, are schools which offer bilingual education and which are aimed at bilingualism, but not in any of the languages spoken by the child at home. The mission of the Rutu Foundation is to make mother tongue education the norm, rather than the exception.
By this we do not mean that children should be offered education in their mother tongues only. Ultimately, mother tongue education is about creating a level playing field, about creating equal opportunities for all, regardless of economic status, ethnic background or geographic location.
