Whether in family life, social interactions, or business negotiations, half the people in the world speak more than one language every day. Yet many myths persist about bilingualism and bilinguals. Does being bilingual mean you are equally fluent in two languages, or that you belong to two cultures, or even that you have multiple personalities? Can you become bilingual only as a child? Why do bilinguals switch from one language to another in mid-sentence? Will raising bilingual children confuse and delay their learning of any language? In a lively and often entertaining book, an international authority on bilingualism, son of an English mother and a French father, explores the many facets of bilingualism. In this book, François Grosjean draws on research, interviews, autobiographies, and the engaging examples of bilingual authors. He describes the various strategies—some useful, some not—used by parents raising bilingual children, explains how children easily pick up and forget languages, and considers how bilingualism affects the experience and expression of emotions, thoughts, and dreams. This book shows that speaking two or more languages is not a sign of intelligence, evasiveness, cultural alienation, or political disloyalty. For millions of people, it’s simply a way of navigating the complexities of life.

Diese Studie verfolgt das Ziel, den Einfluss von bilingualem Unterricht auf die Entwicklung von Language Awareness bei Schulerinnen und Schulern zu erforschen. Dabei wird untersucht, welche Unterschiede zwischen der Language Awareness bei monolingual und bilingual Unterrichteten bestehen. Bei der empirischen Untersuchung handelt es sich um eine zweijahrige Longitudinalstudie, bei der Daten zu vier Messzeitpunkten erhoben und sowohl qualitative als auch quantitative Methoden im Sinne einer Triangulation verknupft wurden. Die Untersuchung wurde an drei hessischen Gymnasien mit bilingual deutsch-englischem Zug in den Klassen 7 und 8 durchgefuhrt. Die Datenerhebung erfolgte anhand von Fragebogen, eines Language Awareness-Tests sowie eines kognitiven Fahigkeitstests. Die Daten wurden mittels statistischer Verfahren wie z.B. Signifikanztests und qualitativen Inhaltsanalysen ausgewertet und interpretiert."

Hayday shows how the language programs and policies initiated by the Trudeau government supported French-Canadian and Acadian minority communities, enabling them to develop minority language education systems and laying the groundwork for the minority language education rights contained in section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. He examines how the dynamics of Canadian federalism shaped the implementation and development of language policy in six Canadian provinces and shows how advocates of these programs - politicians, bureaucrats, parents, lobbyists, and teachers - worked to ensure their success. These dynamic programs not only guaranteed minority language education rights but dramatically increased access to French second language instruction, particularly through the innovative new sector of French immersion.

This volume examines the connection between socio-economic class and bilingual practices, a previously under-researched area, through looking at differences in bilingual settings that are classified as "immigrant" or "elite" and are thus linked to socio-economic class categories. Fuller chooses for this examination bilingual pre-teen children in Germany and the U.S. in order to demonstrate how local identities are embedded in a wider social world and how ideologies and identities both produce and reproduce each other. In so doing, she argues that while pre-teen children are clearly influenced by macro-level ideologies, they also have agency in how they choose to construct their identities with relation to hegemonic societal discourses, and have many other motivations and identities aside from social class membership which shape their linguistic practices.
