The acceleration of globalisation in recent years has evidently resulted in migration as people seek job opportunities in countries with stable economies. As a result, children from diverse cultures and languages need to be accommodated in schools where classes have become more diverse, and thus the language of learning and teaching may be learners’ second or third language. Hence, learners are expected to cope with the language of learning and teaching as well as the sociocultural factors which impact the teaching and learning of the curriculum. The articles in this special issue reflect the importance of the role language plays in education in different countries, and make a call for continued research in the different areas of language teaching and learning in the education fraternity throughout the world.
