Book Information

Book Description

This unit is dedicated to the West Frisian language, a minority language of the Netherlands, and provides an overview of the language’s social context with special attention paid to education. It is aimed at anyone who is interested in minority languages, especially educators.

The unit has four chapters that follow the same structure as the other OWL+ units, which allows you to compare the social contexts and educational provisions.

Each chapter includes an outline of what to expect and you can find emphasised key takeaways as means to reflect on the given information. You will find interactive activities and quizzes as a way of testing or reflecting on the facts and situations presented throughout the unit. We recommend that you follow the unit chapter by chapter, but you’re welcome to explore it freely using the navigation panel.
