Comment on Anderson says she is not in conflict with Chief Minister on bilingual schooling by Gavan Breen.

Some commentators, and some of the press, don’t seem to know that teaching a language and teaching in a language are two different things. In bilingual education you teach in a particular language in the early stages, and later, and gradually, you change to teaching in a different language. This would normally involve teaching that second language before you start teaching in it. It does not necessarily involve teaching the first language at any stage.
