in Bilingualism

51ychk4hhxlI’ve blogged in the past about what is in my opinion one of the most comprehensive books out there regarding bilingual education and bilingualism. Now I’ll be giving one away to a lucky reader this week!!

The book is a bilingual education enthusiast’s dream come true. It’s easily accessible and interesting to both the bilingual education expert as well as someone just beginning to learn about bilingual education. It covers topics ranging from: bilingual language development, bilingualism and cognition, second language acquisition theories, history of bilingual education, bilingual education program models, bilingual education research and effectiveness, assessment of bilingual learners, deaf bilingual learners, bilingual special education, the politics of bilingualism, and many other topics.

If you are a bilingual teacher, bilingual administrator, a student learning about bilingual education, a parent raising a bilingual child, or a person interested in second language acquisition..this is the book for you!

I blogged in the past more extensively about the topics in each chapter, which you can read here. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I think that this book is one of the most comprehensive books about bilingual education and bilingualism that I have encountered!!

Favorite resource to teach Spanish at the moment:
Getting bilingual books or just books in Spanish at the Library. My boy gets excited with them every time because they are constantly new!

It is late and I’m living in Italy, so.. no book:)
However, I’m a mother of 21 month bilingual (I hope so) child (Italian-Russian(me)) and I’m writing my blog about raising this beautiful boy. I would love to read your book one day!
Un saluto from Rome,
