Kobe JALT:

Annual Bilingualism Presentation and BBQ

Date: Sunday, May 24th, 2015 Time: 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Speaker: Steve McCarty

The Presentation is followed by a BBQ. This presentation aims for participants to understand the big picture of bilingualism, at different levels and connected to different types of language acquisition. There are many factors that affect bilingual development, such as starting age, and many bilingual child-raising approaches that ultimately work. The social environment can cause difficulties, but languages in contact, within and between people, have no drawbacks, just benefits to the extent a person becomes bilingual. As one result, bicultural young people are becoming increasing prominent in Japanese society. The needs of the individual, family, schools, and society are all aligned with bilingual development. Bilingual phenomena in Japan will be contextualized in a taxonomy.
