Abstract:

Increasingly, children grow up hearing two languages from birth. This
introductory textbook shows how children learn to understand and speak
those languages against the backdrop of their language learning
environments. A narrative around the bilingual development of four young
children with different language profiles helps to explain the latest
research findings in a lively and accessible manner. The narrative
describes how bilingually raised children learn to understand and use
sounds, words and sentences in two languages, and how they are able to use
each of their languages in socially appropriate ways. Positive attitudes
towards bilingual development from the people in bilingual children's
environments and their recognition that child bilingualism is not
monolingualism-times-two are the main ingredients ensuring that children
grow up to be happy and expert speakers of two languages.
