Second Language Learning in Bilingual Communities.
Rothfarb, Sylvia H.
Language acquisition in bilingual communities is noted to be fundamentally distinct from other types of second language learning. Discussion centers about the multi-dialectal, bilingual speech community of Miami with respect to educational opportunities afforded the city's ethnic groups. The function and achievement of the Spanish Curricula Center is observed in terms of city-wide bilingual program development. (RL)
