Abstract Multiliteracies is a new movement in language education pioneered by the New London Group . Especially from a recent book-length treatment (Cope and Kalantzis 2000) the movement seems a brilliant synthesis of views that may not be entirely new but which have not always been particularly well implemented. Certain of these views dovetail with our own concerns about a neglected area in the teaching of Indonesian, namely the social significance of the use of Indonesian varieties vis-à-vis regional languages. After considering this problem we’ll also consider a possible solution and how it relates to the Multiliteracies approach to pedagogy.
