Abstract:

This book examines language policies and practices in schools in regions of
China populated by indigenous minority groups. It focuses on models of
trilingual education, i.e. education in the home language, Putonghua (Mandarin
Chinese, the national language), and English (the main foreign language).
Special attention is given to the study of the vitality of the minority home
language in each region and issues relating to and the effects of the teaching
and learning of the minority home language on minority students’ acquisition
of Mandarin Chinese and English and on their school performance in general.
The book also examines the case of Cantonese in Guangdong, where the local
Chinese ‘dialect’ is strong but distant from the mainstream language,
Putonghua. It takes a new approach to researching sociolinguistic phenomena,
and presents a new methodology that emerged from studies of bi/trilingualism
in European societies and was then tailored to the trilingual context in
China. The methodology encompasses policy analysis and community language
profiles, as well as school-based fieldwork, and provides rich data that
facilitate multilevel analysis of policy-in-context.
