Summary All over the world there are children who learn one language (or more than one) at home and then have to learn another when they attend school. In some cases this is because children come from immigrant backgrounds; in other cases children come from indigenous communities in countries which have been colonized. This book illustrates the linguistic diversity that can be found in such communities, and examines a wide range of factors which relate to the divergence between home and school langauge for children growing up in indigenous multilingual communites
