Abstract:

This book brings together new theoretical perspectives and bilingual education
models from different sociopolitical and cultural contexts across the globe in
order to address the importance of sociocultural, educational and linguistic
environments that create, enhance or limit the ways in which diasporic
children and young people acquire the ‘Chinese’ language. The chapters present
a variety of research-based studies on Chinese heritage language education and
bilingual education drawing on detailed investigations of formal and informal
educational input including language socialization in families, community
heritage language schools and government sponsored educational institutions.
Exploring the many pathways of learning ‘Chinese’ and being ‘Chinese’, this
volume also examines the complex nature of language acquisition and
development, involving language attitudes and ideologies as well as linguistic
practices and identity formation. Learning Chinese in Diasporic Communities is
intended for researchers, teacher-educators, students and practitioners in the
fields of Chinese language education and bilingual education and more broadly
those concerned with language policy studies and sociolinguistics.
