Teaching and Learning at Home: Features of Parental Support for the Bilingual Competence of Pre-Schoolers.
Sharpe, Pamela
Early Child Development and Care, v130 p75-83 Mar 1997
Used interviews and questionnaires to examine parents' role in supporting bilingual competence of Singapore preschoolers. Found that well-educated mothers used English in everyday interactions and provided story reading, television, and video viewing in English and Mandarin. Parents were aware of the need for appropriate physical and material provision, encouragement of conversations using both languages, and family-oriented recreation. (Author/KB)
