Lin, Angel M. Y. – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Translanguaging theories emphasize a fluid, dynamic view of language and differ from code-switching/mixing theories by de-centring the analytic focus from the language(s) being used in the interaction to the speakers who are making meaning and constructing original and complex discursive practices. Trans-semiotizing theories further broaden the…

Content-based education programmes, in which a second/foreign language (L2) is used as the medium of instruction when teaching non-language content subjects, aim at both content and L2 learning. With such dual goal in mind, and with the rapid expansion of the programmes to contexts where students might have only basic L2 proficiency, there have…

Duarte, Joana – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Due to the monolingual self-understanding of European nation-states, migration-induced multilingualism and the language mixing practices it triggers are not usually acknowledged as resources for learning within mainstream classrooms. The term translanguaging has recently been put forward as both a way of describing the flexible ways in which…

Kremin, Lena V.; Arredondo, Maria M.; Hsu, Lucy Shih-Ju; Satterfield, Teresa; Kovelman, Ioulia – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019
Models of monolingual literacy propose that reading acquisition builds upon children's semantic, phonological, and orthographic knowledge. The relationships between these components vary cross-linguistically, yet it is generally unknown how these differences impact bilingual children's literacy. A comparison between Spanish-English bilingual and…

Hsu, Lucy Shih-Ju; Ip, Ka I.; Arredondo, Maria M.; Tardif, Twila; Kovelman, Ioulia – International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, 2019

The developmental nature of this network varies across languages and is known to impact second-language learners of typologically different languages. Yet, it…
