The Influence of Teachers and Peers on Second Language Acquisition in Bilingual Preschool Programs.
Chesterfield, Ray; And Others
TESOL Quarterly, v17 n3 p401-19 Sep 1983
The interaction patterns of eleven Spanish-speaking preschool children in two bilingual programs were observed for one year. In predominantly English-speaking classrooms, greater English proficiency was related to English use with peers. In prevalently Spanish-speaking classes, English proficiency was more related to interaction in English with teachers. (MSE)
