Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Studies in Bilingual Education
Edited By: Daniel Madrid
Stephen Hughes
Series Title: Linguistic Insights - Volume 122

This book deals with bilingual education in general, but it pays special
attention to bilingual education in monolingual areas. One central aim is to
study the effects of bilingual programmes during the final stages of Primary
and Secondary Education in contexts where the L2 (English) is not normally
used as an instrument of social communication in the students' environment,
but instead is used only at school, where some subject areas are undertaken
totally or partially in this language. The reader interested in bilingual education
will find a valuable source of information on different bilingual programmes in
the USA and Spain: what schools do and the contents they teach, their
timetable and extracurricular activities; the specific objectives that they aim
to achieve and the methodology they use, with special reference to the CLIL
approach, the schools and the students' level of success with bilingual
education, the most common problems that they have to face in monolingual
areas and how to solve them.
