This course presents an introduction to bilingualism from both social and cognitive perspectives, examining areas related to bilingual individuals and groups. We will explore issues of describing, measuring, achieving and maintaining the ability to speak more than one language, and examine societal issues such as the role of language policies and formal education. We will examine questions such as: What is the role of code-switching practices? Is there a cognitive advantage to being bilingual? What kinds of education practices most benefit bilingual children? We will examine data from a variety of world contexts to explore these questions.
