Why Don't They Speak English?: Separating Fact from Fallacy in the U.S. Language Debate (Language and Literacy Series)

Why Don't They Speak English?: Separating Fact from Fallacy in the U.S. Language Debate (Language and Literacy Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This compelling book examines the often cited but poorly supported claims that immigrants fail to learn English, and the mistaken belief that immigrant communities cling to their heritage languages. The author reveals that, on the contrary, English is being learned at a rapid pace while heritage languages are disappearing quickly from family use. She shows us how current assumptions have a pervasive influence on language policy in the United States.<P>Ultimately, the author argues for an educational approach that effectively embraces immigrant communities. This unique volume offers a short, readable introduction to these issues suitable for nonspecialists as well as educators, researchers, and other professionals.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 93-103) and index.
