Welcome to Mercator's wiki on minority language learning

Mercator's wiki in minority language learning aims to:

  • to give the visitor an overview of the minority languages in Europe and beyond,
  • to inform about education in these minority languages,
  • to offer resources for language learning.

The focus of this wiki is on languages that have a minor or almost non-existent place in a nation's education system. It complements Mercator's Regional Dossiers, which concern languages whose presence in the education system is more significant.

To read more about a specific minority language, select a language from the sidebar or click on the map below:
