Abstract:

This book has much to excite the SLA researcher and the second
language teacher.�The interlingual comparison makes the study of
second language reading and writing acquisition especially
meaningful. The students themselves take on a central role as
individuals rather than just as statistics or categories.
Professor Michael Clyne, University of Melbourne, Australia.

This book has the merit of redressing the balance of quantitative
research carried out on immersion programmes in favour of a definitely
qualitative approach. It is revealing of such classroom practices as
codeswitching and translation, which have been frowned upon, in
official pronouncements on language use in these types of
programmes. The author has made use of a wide range of data sources
which she has combined well to provide convincing evidence for the
classroom phenomena under study.
Dr. Anne-Marie de Mejía, Universidad del Valle, Cali, Colombia.

DESCRIPTION 
This book, which follows the progress of two groups of learners in
late immersion programs aims to add to the literature on immersion
programs by its emphasis on the processes of learning in such
programs. Another aim of the book is to extend our knowledge of
learning processes in character-based languages.

CONTENTS 
1. Language Learning in Immersion Programs; 2. How and where the
research was done; 3. Learners' Responses to the Learning
Context; 4. Language Learning Experiences; 5. Reading and Writing;
6. Language Learning Process and Strategies; 7. Discussion and
Conclusion
