Children as Mediators for the Second Language Learning of Their Migrant Parents.
Duran, Pilar
Language and Education, v17 n5 p311-31 2003
Argues parent/child sharing of school homework provides a beneficial environment for migrant parents to learn English as a Second Language. Ten Hispanic children were studied in interactions with their mothers in two settings: doing homework and at mealtime. Results show that during homework, children spoke English more frequently, produced English verbs with richer morphology, and provided feedback more often than in mealtime conversations. (Author/VWL)
