Bilingual Research Journal, v21 n4 p395-408 Fall 1997
A study of 151 bilingual Hispanic students aged 12-18 found that both English proficiency and Spanish proficiency were significantly related to academic achievement (standardized test scores and, to a lesser extent, grade point average). Among Spanish skills, written language had the strongest relationship to academic success. Contains 39 references. (Author/SV)
