Assessment of the Status of Bilingual Vocational Training for Adults. Final Report-Phase I. Volume III: Review of Literature.
Peterson, Morris; And Others
This literature review is the third volume of a three-volume report on the status of bilingual vocational training (BVT) for adults in the United States. Few studies were found that directly related to conducting bilingual vocational training for adults of limited English-speaking ability. The review is divided into the following sections: (1) mother tongue versus second language instruction, (2) justifications of the need for bilingual/bicultural programs, (3) communication, (4) self-concept, (5) motivation to learn a second language, (6) first and second language learning characteristics, (7) influence of age on learning a second or foreign language; (8) effects of bilingual instruction on the native language, (9) bilingualism and intelligence, (10) effects of bilingual schooling on achievement in other subjects. Most of the experimental, evaluation and demonstration studies were conducted in the United States and Canada. However, literature from other countries is also reported. (Author/SW)
