Linguistic Exposure of Trinidadian Children.
Carrington, L. D.; And Others
The great diversity in the linguistic backgrounds of children in Trinidad could be a significant factor in problems in English language learning and teaching. To investigate this possibility, teachers have been completing questionnaires concerning the linguistic background and regular exposure to Hindi, French Creole, Spanish, or Chinese, of some of their pupils. The findings of the survey can have implications for language courses, instructional materials, teacher education, and teaching methods. (VM)
