Language and the Curriculum in Hong Kong: Dilemmas of Triglossia.
Adamson, Bob; Lai, Winnie Auyeung
Comparative Education, v33 n2 p233-46 Jun 1997
Draws on official documents and teaching materials to trace the growth of Putonghua (the official language of China) in school curricula in Hong Kong (where Hong Kong Cantonese and English predominate). Although promoting Putonghua is logical, tensions arise from the already heavy bias toward language subjects in school curricula and shortage of qualified Putonghua teachers. Contains 29 references.
