L’Harmattan is a well-known publisher in France for academic books and specialised collections. L’Harmattan Jeunesse specialises in children’s books and mostly traditional tales, and is a valuable resource for teachers and educators because it offers a very rich collection of bilingual (and in some cases trilingual or quadrilingual) traditional tales for children. The wide choice of languages is highly impressive and the books are beautifully illustrated. Many rare languages and languages in danger from all over the globe are present, whether from Africa, Latin America, The Pacific or the Indian Ocean, The Middle East or the Caribbean, etc. For example a recent publication offers a traditional tale from Guyana in four languages: Creole, French, Portuguese and Palikur. The books are inexpensive, making it easy for a school to build a collection, which would answer the literacy needs of its multilingual population. These books are an invaluable resource to support biliteracy in many languages and to link home and school cultures. They offer teachers the opportunity to include in their literacy teaching languages that they do not know but which might be spoken in their students’ homes or be part of their cultural heritage. An invaluable resource for teachers to learn about the wealth of languages in the world and to make them aware they should also educate their students to linguistic sustainability.

Instituto Camões (IC) is the Portuguese agency for external cultural and educational policy and promotes Portuguese culture and language abroad (230 HE institutions in 64 countries). Its main focus is the teaching of Portuguese and culture at University level. One of the main strategies of the institute is to train teachers of Portuguese as a Second language. It also promotes the continuous training of teachers of Portuguese abroad for students of primary and secondary education. The website contains a digital library (Biblioteca Digital Camões) with free downloadable texts and documents on culture and language for teacher educators. There is also a virtual learning area (Centro Virtual Camões) on the website that is divided into 5 areas: learning; knowledge; teaching; translation; and distance learning. Each of these areas contains online resources on Portuguese culture and language.
The key role of The Languages Company is to support delivery of government policy on language teaching in England. However, it is also involved in a number of projects and initiatives related to pedagogy and policy and provides access to key information and resources. The document Towards an integrated curriculum – CLIL National Statement and Guidelines was published in 2009 and can be downloaded from the site.
