Book - 1993
Rate this:
The essays in this volume are all written by experts in their field. The research on and the pedagogical experience with heritage language education has shown that heritage language training in the elementary school system tends to facilitate, rather than hinder, the acquisition of literacy and communicative fluency in the dominant languages. It tends to enhance the child's cognitive development and academic performance. It promotes a favourable outlook on one's ethnocultural background and on the cultural differences of others.
