Linguistic Problems of Adult Migrant Workers and Socio-linguistic Problems of Migrant Workers' Children Being Educated in the Host Country.
Verdoodt, Albert
This article examines the linguistic problems of adult migrant workers and sociolinguistic problems of their children. The introduction states provisions for migrant workers' ethnic and linguistic rights. An examination of the actual situation leads to the general statement that linguistic rights of migrant workers are passively tolerated and not actively encouraged by the host country. The reasons for this situation are examined, as well as obstacles which stand in the way of successful implementation of government-subsidized bilingual programs in the United States. Various bilingual program models in the United States and in Europe are discussed. The conclusion argues for a pluralistic bilingual education program for migrant groups, supported by the host country. Sample questionnaires are included in appendixes. (AM)
