The second edition of this book provides an introduction of practical value to questions of bilingualism for parents and teachers. The style of the book is to pose questions that people most often ask about raising bilingual children. Straightforward answers follow, written in direct, plain English. Ideas and perceptions have been extended and enriched in this edition, and there has been elaboration and refinement in particular answers such as: the advantages of bilingualism; language mixing; trilingualism; and identity problems. Also a variety of new material has been included; for examples: influence of the World Wide Web and the Internet on bilingualism; the benefits for children who have a less developed second language; employment and bilingualism/multilingualism; mixed language marriages; and language strategies with an adopted child.
