Living With Two Languages and Cultures

eBook - 2007
Rate this:
Recounting the personal experiences of 12 bilingual Australians, this immensely moving collection of stories shows how immersion in two overlapping cultures affects one's perspectives on the world and relationships with other people. Including contributions from Kim Scott and Eva Sallis, these stories—childhood recollections, migrant experiences, journeys of self-discovery, and accounts of feeling culturally torn or undefined—demonstrate the intrinsic links between language, culture, and identity.
