Lai, Mee-ling
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v22 n2 p112-33 2001
Examined the attitudes of Hong Kong secondary school students toward English, Cantonese, and Putonghua. Compared the language attitudes of two main groups of Hong Kong students, middle class elite and working class low achievers. Findings showed that the former group was more inclined to use English while the latter group was more inclined to use the vernacular Cantonese. (Author/VWL)
