Title: Maintaining a Minority Language
Subtitle: A Case Study of Hispanic Teenagers
Written By: John Gibbons
Elizabeth Ramirez
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=18535967406
Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

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.
