Bilingual Education in South Africa: English and Afrikaans.
McEachern, William Ross
Reading Improvement, v34 n3 p114-19 Fall 1997
Notes that until 1994, English and Afrikaans were the two official languages of South Africa, and educational policy promoted bilingualism in the country's schools. Examines the two languages historically and socially in order to make some comparisons with bilingual education in Canada. Makes reference to the future roles of the two languages in the quickly evolving country. (RS)
