Language Strategies for Bilingual Families

by Suzanne Barron-Hauwaert

This book focuses on the one parent one language/one person one language (OPOL) approach and covers issues that can come up in some detail. It is very practical and offers parents specific advice or options. For example, it is the only book that we are aware of, apart from Colin Baker’s see above, that discusses in some detail the implications of the situation where one parent doesn’t understand a language that he other parent is using to speak to the child(ren). Available to borrow at the Limes.
