Summary

Bilingualism in Schools and Society is an introduction to the social and educational aspects of bilingualism. It offers an overview of a broad range of sociolinguistic and political issues surrounding bilingualism, examines the language mixing behavior of bilingual speakers, and explores the use of two or more languages in popular music, advertising, and online social spaces. The book covers such key topics as language maintenance and shift, attitudes toward bilingualism, bilingual identity, multilingual educational models and policies, and bilingual parenting. Each chapter concludes with a list of further readings and resources, study questions, and activities. Boxed vignettes ('out of the mouths of bilinguals') and a glossary further reinforce concepts.
