The Bilingual Family Newsletter: Archives

Editor: Sami Grover

This exciting quarterly publication, which ceased publication in its 27th year, was designed to help all those families who, for various reasons, are in a situation where they can give their children (and themselves) the advantages of being bi- or multi-lingual. The newsletter published short informative articles on current thoughts on language learning, bilingualism, biculturalism, mother tongue, schools, etc. It also published descriptions of how particular families have managed in their particular situations, problems encountered and how these were overcome. Readership: mixed marriage families; expatriate families in embassies, schools, contract work etc.; immigrant families; students of language learning; researchers in field of bilingualism. You can access the archive of back issues using the link in the menu.
