This volume analyses and discusses various facets of bilingualism from an international perspective. The topics covered include the relationship of bilingualism and intelligence, the social and geographical bases of bilingualism, acculturation, and lexical development. But it is the field of bilingual education which supplies the main area of interest with papers on school systems in Wales, Australia and Nigeria: the discussions here examine linguistic aspects of curricular design, language teaching methodology, and assessment.
