Towards a Multilingual Australia.
Birch, Gary
Babel: Journal of the Australian Federation of Modern Language Teachers Associations, (Special Edition) v18 n3 p38-42 1983
Advocates national policy of multiculturalism and multilingualism, acquired through cohesive use of a common language (English) spoken by all Australians, yet retaining and incorporating the more than 20 major languages presently in use. Suggests provisions for efficient teaching of English and encouragement of all other community languages, moving away from linguistic assimilation, and towards a policy of language maintenance. (SL)
