Summary "The increase in international business transactions has brought about the temporary migration of Japanese families to many countries. Japanese Children Abroad examines the particular linguistic, cultural and educational implications of temporary residence in a foreign country from the perspective of professionals in the fields of education, language acquisition and bilingualism, and from Japanese people themselves. The book focuses on the maintenance of the Japanese language and the acquisition of English, but contains important insights into bilingualism and education in many other contexts." --Book Jacket
