Bilingualism and Bilingual Education Programs.
Periodico del Proyecto de Educacion Bilingue/Bilingual Education Project Newsletter, p1-11 Spr 1972
The bilingual is an individual who straddles and/or links, to a greater or lesser degree, two or more languages and cultures. The degree of language and cultural dominance can vary from individual to individual, and bilingual programs must take this variety into consideration. This paper considers some of the varying degrees of bilingual language/cultural dominance and discusses the need for programs which serve all members of the community. Bilingualism within a particular community must be defined before programs can be designed. (VM)
