Abstract:

Increasingly, children grow up hearing two languages from birth. This
comprehensive textbook explains how children learn to understand and speak
those languages. It brings together both established knowledge and the
latest findings about different areas of bilingual language development. It
also includes new analyses of previously published materials. The book
describes how bilingually raised children learn to understand and use
sounds, words and sentences in two languages. A recurrent theme is the
large degree of variation between bilingual children. This variation in how
children develop bilingually reflects the variation in their language
learning environments. Positive attitudes from the people in bilingual
children's language learning 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.

Abstract:

This textbook brings together research on literacy and multilingualism from
a variety of settings: the learning of English in migrant destinations,
immersion and bilingual education, and the maintenance of heritage
languages. Designed to be accessible to students from a wide range of
disciplines, the book explores multilingualism as a global phenomenon at
both the individual and societal level, and literacy learning in a wide
variety of contexts. It uses both these discussions to explore the
theoretical and policy issues which are behind current educational
practice, and points to possible ways forward. Students are introduced to
examples of innovative and best practice from a range of international
contexts, and discussion points and suggested activities encourage them to
build on their own experiences as language learners. This is an ideal
introductory text for students on courses where a critical understanding of
language in education is necessary, as well as being a useful summary of
the field and its future directions for researchers, practitioners and
policy makers.
