This collection of research papers is an outcome of two Regional Hornby Schools hosted by the British Council in Abuja, Nigeria in 2014 and 2015. They cover a range of topics concerning English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) in relation to national language-in-education policies in a number of countries in Sub-Saharan Africa including Ethiopia, Rwanda and Nigeria.
The papers reflect the views of various stakeholders including policy-makers at national, ministerial and regional levels as well as implementers of policy at department and local levels. This includes, of course, the thoughts and perspectives of head teachers, teachers and parents in schools.
