Abstract:

This book explores two main areas. First, what a high level of
proficiency in two languages consists of, and second, what factors can
produce this high level of bilingual proficiency. Higher level
language is usually acquired at school, but many minority language
students are educated in only one language. The book therefore
examines other factors in the development of the minority language,
such as home literacy practices and positive attitudes, that might
contribute to the development of high bilingual proficiency.
