The Benefits of Second Language Acquisition and Teaching for Indigenous Language Educators.
Berlin, Lawrence N.
Journal of American Indian Education, v39 n3 p19-35 2000

Therefore, schools can play a pivotal role in reversing language shift by addressing circumstances specific to second language learning. The field of second language acquisition and teaching can provide teachers of indigenous languages with research-based pedagogical approaches and techniques. (Contains 78 references.) (Author/SV)
