When Children Speak English, Do They Know English?
Lenskyj, Helen
TESL Talk, v13 n2 p64-68 Spr 1982
Presents study which evaluated L2 performance of 15 bilingual preschool children in terms of basic interpersonal communicative skills (BICS) and cognitive/academic language proficiency (CALP). Results show that several aspects of L2 proficiency by which teachers frequently evaluate students' mastery of English are poor predictors of cognitive/academic language proficiency. Results show weak correlation between BICS and CALP ratings. (Author/BK)
