Example text

What languages will be dominant within the context of globalization? The competitive language right now is Mandarin. In fact, more people speak Mandarin than speak English. And, Mandarin is mentioned in the People’s Republic of China Constitution. It’s supposed to be the national language. Now there are a lot of different languages in China, but the national language is Mandarin. So, some people will argue that’s the major competitive language. It appears that English will continue to dominate.

1905 TO 1954 From 1905 to 1923, large waves of immigrants from southern and eastern Europe entered the United States, in part because immigration laws, which were restructured on the basis of national origin, favored people of European descent. Increased numbers of immigrants, undoubtedly coupled with the defeat of Germany and its allies by the United States and its allies in World War I, contributed to the loss of the German language’s favorable status in the United States. The major impact was that instruction in German gradually declined, and by the end of World War I (1914 to 1918), instruction in German was banned.

However, Katz and her colleagues move the discussion beyond language attitudes to language ideologies. In Chapter 8, Shelton looks at ways to change negative teacher attitudes. She pushes the discussion beyond attitudes to include language awareness, beginning with preservice teachers’ discoveries of variations in their own language and moving on to explorations of authentic language samples. In Chapter 9, Kirkland and Jackson demonstrate how even the progressive contrastive analysis approach to oral language development, which alert students to structural differences between non-Standard and Standard English, can lead to problems of self-identity.
