Cultural Contrasts in English-French Bilingual Instruction in the Early Grades.
Giles, W. H.
This paper discusses the relationship between language development and cognitive development in children within the framework of a French-English bilingual school situation. Initially the document covers the language development of the infant learning English; the author then describes specific problems of educating the English-speaking child with French as the principal means of instruction. Tables illustrate the results of tests administered to children in a French-English curriculum, pointing out areas of confusion. (VM)
