Reviews

This is a fascinating volume that raises fundamental questions regarding the values and limits of theories and models of multilingual teaching and learning in institutionalized contexts. It brings the debates about theory, policy, practice and ideology together. The impact of the studies in this volume will be felt for a very long time to come. Li Wei, Chair of Applied Linguistics, University College London (UCL), UK.


This is a fascinating volume that raises fundamental questions regarding the values and limits of theories and models of multilingual teaching and learning in institutionalized contexts. It brings the debates about theory, policy, practice and ideology together. The impact of the studies in this volume will be felt for a very long time to come. Li Wei, Chair of Applied Linguistics, University College London (UCL), UK. Decades of (socio)linguistic research on language mixing has made two things abundantly clear: it is ubiquitous in bilingual communities and it is highly structured. As such, eliminating it is neither feasible nor desirable. The editors of this indispensable volume are to be congratulated for hammering these facts home to the educational community. May their and their contributors' sage observations lead teachers to recognize and capitalize on the stunning resources bilingual kids bring to school rather than treating them as a liability. Shana Poplack, Distinguished University Professor and Canada Research Chair in Linguistics, and Director, Sociolinguistics Laboratory, University of Ottawa, Canada.
