Childhood Bilingualism: Current Status and Future Research Directions



PDF
This workshop, held April 22-23, 2004, sought to capitalize on the increasing convergence of interest in theoretical underpinnings of language development with the translation of research findings for the practical benefit of children. Primary purposes of the workshop were to initiate an open and ongoing discussion among key members of the research community, as well as across disciplines and research approaches, and across national boundaries, and to develop a research agenda that outlines major research questions, re-energizes research, and promotes the development of novel, creative approaches or approaches not seen traditionally in the area of bilingual language development. The information in this report was current at the date of publication, but has not been updated. The document is provided for historical purposes only.
