Bilingual students who choose to study their native language in school have unique needs. Once they have been identified and placed in a special class for native speakers, these children must learn to match their familiar verbal language with the less familiar written language. By becoming translators and interpreters for the school, writing for specific modes, maintaining journals, and editing sentences, bilingual students can improve their writing proficiency. (MLH)
