an easy and informative read,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Bilingual Family (Paperback)
This is a very well written book which is easy to read but nevertheless provides the reader with a great deal of information. The first part of the book discusses how language generally is acquired and the pros and cons of bringing a child up as a bilingual. This is a very helpful introduction as it is difficult to make an informed decision about doing something specific without having the general background. The case studies cover a wide variety of senarios and were helpful. It is however true that the book is probably more helpful as an introduction to bilingualism and not a handbook on how to help biligual children.
