Skol Diwan in Paris: a step away from regionalism in the teaching of Breton
Keywords:Breton, Diwan schools, minority language promotion, multilingualism, regionalist approach of minority languages
AbstractThis paper presents some information about the opening of a bilingual (French-Breton) Diwan school in Paris, Diwan schools’ characteristics and their teaching methods and Breton teaching in general. It also proposes some considerations of the Diwan schools network’s policy, which draws its inspiration from a regionalist conception of the minority languages’ promotion and on the significance of the opening of a Diwan school in Paris. It claims to open new prospects for developing the teaching of regional languages in France, where this topic is very controversial.
