This is a contribution to the continuing debate over the use of the
mother-tongue in education. Focusing on Tanzania, usually given as
an example of successful language planning in Africa, it looks at
the advantages and disadvantages of using African language in
education. In 1953 UNESCO recommended the use of the mother-tongue
as the medium of education. However, most African countries still
use a European language, especially at secondary and tertiary
levels. Tanzania is a predominantly Kiswahili-speaking society
which still uses English as the medium of education. Drawing on the
Tanzanian experience this volume addresses the issue of language
policy in Africa.
