            Growing up With Two Languages provides a highly accessible account of the stages of language development, describes and evaluates the various systems and strategies that can be adopted and looks at the problems that can occur when a child is exposed to two language and cultures. ...Combining research-informed advice and the experience of parents raising children as speakers of a wide range of languages in every populated continent in the world, this book and its associated web material will answer questions, offer tried and tested strategies to keep children speaking a minority language and give material to enlist the support of the extended family, teachers and others. The perspective of adults themselves raised speaking more than one language is included. New to this edition is a chapter focussing on families raising children as speakers of indigenous and threatened languages and chapters for teachers and for health professionals who want to know more about multilingual child language development and how they can support parents to continue speaking their language with their children. With new and updated first-hand advice, Internet resources and examples throughout, this book also includes a chapter that introduces important recent research into multilingual children and further reading guides for those who want to know more. This book is for parents who are raising or plan to raise children as speakers of more than one language, and for the teachers and healthcare workers who meet and can support them.

            What exactly does it mean for two languages to coexist in the same brain? How do babies exposed to different languages differentiate between them? And how does cognitive decline affect the two languages? Bilingualism is quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception as more ...than half of the world's population is able to communicate in more than one language. In The Bilingual Brain, leading expert Albert Costa guides us through the latest research exploring the many fascinating questions raised by bilingualism: from how children exposed to two different languages determine between them to how it influences our decisions. Filled with memorable examples from cutting-edge studies, The Bilingual Brain shows that bilingualism can help us better understand how language works.

            Understanding and Teaching English Spelling: A Strategic Guide (Hardback)

            Concise and engaging, this text provides English language teachers with what they need to successfully teach the spelling of English-both classroom exercises and techniques and also some background history and theory about the English spelling system in no more detail than is nec...essary. It uniquely addresses the dilemma that many teachers require learners to learn the spelling of English words but give no indication of how they should learn them; so, where is the teaching? A strategic approach is adopted, so that teachers can help learners cope with the pronunciation of new words encountered in writing and, vice versa, the spelling of new words encountered in speech. Because no subject is an island, the text encompasses elements from other closely related fields including how dictionaries differ in their preferred spelling for compounds (is this a matter of spelling or punctuation?), typography conventions used by publishers, and SMS text language (how has this affected the spelling of writers in more formal contexts?). Short, digestible chapters end with exercises and activities to help readers understand spelling concepts and their own use of English spelling.

            Distinguished multiculturalist Sonia Nieto speaks directly to current and future teachers in this thoughtful integration of a selection of her key writings with creative pedagogical features. Offering information, insights, and motivation to teach students of diverse cultural, ra...cial, and linguistic backgrounds, examples are included throughout to illustrate real-life dilemmas about diversity that teachers face in their own classrooms; ideas about how language, culture, and teaching are linked; and ways to engage with these ideas through reflection and collaborative inquiry. Designed for upper-undergraduate and graduate-level students and professional development courses, each chapter includes critical questions; classroom activities; and community activities suggesting projects beyond the classroom context. The Third Edition includes new and updated chapters, section introductions, critical questions, classroom and community activities, and resources, bringing it up-to-date in terms of recent educational policy issues and demographic changes in our society.
