"This book constitutes a challenge to traditional and established ways of understanding education in our increasingly diverse and globalized world. For researchers in the field of bilingualism and multilingualism the book attempts to describe and provide support for a term that goes beyond the description of multilingual language practices. Monolingual ideological stances strongly affect how many applied linguists and sociolinguists discuss bilingualism and multilingualism. This book is an absolute must-read for those who seek to adopt a more critical perspective." (Melissa Moyer, Journal of Sociolinguistics, Vol. 20, 2016)
"Ofelia Garcia and Li Wei have just managed to write the book that will definitely inscribe the concept of 'translanguaging' in the heuristic landscape of Language Education." -Language and Intercultural Communication
"Garcia and Wei effectively argue that translanguaging is clearly a process that advocates for polymorphus language learners and is indeed worth serious consideration in our current educational system.' - Hispania
