 Abstract:
 
 The lives of many families involve contact with more than one
 language and culture on a daily basis. These children can potentially 
 become proficient in both the languages around them, provided they
 receive enough input in both languages. Growing up with Two Languages 
 is aimed at the many parents and professionals who feel uncertain
 about the best way to go about helping children to gain maximum
 benefit from the situation.
 
 Every family's situation is different, but there is a good deal that
 parents can do to make life with two languages easier for their
 children. Families often establish an informal system for deciding
 who speaks what language in which situation. Consistency in sticking
 to the system will be helpful to the child, especially at the
 beginning. The "one person-one language" system, where each person
 speaks one of the languages (usually his/her native language) to the
 child and the "minority language at home" system, where the entire
 family speaks the language which is not spoken in the community at
 home are two of the most common systems.
 
 There are, however, as many variations on these systems as there are
 families. There is no right or wrong way - here each family has to
 find its own system. Growing up with Two Languages is illustrated by
 glimpses of life from interviews with fifty families from all around
 the world. The trials and rewards of life with two languages and
 cultures are discussed in detail, and followed by practical advice on 
 how to support the child's linguistic development.
