Book Information


Title: Schreibfähigkeit und Mehrsprachigkeit [Written Language Skills and Multilingualism]
Written By: Inger Petersen
Series Title: De Gruyter DaZ-Forschung [DaZ-For] 5

There has been relatively little previous research on the written language skills of older children with German as their second language. This study uses the theoretical perspective of written language development research to explore the question of whether the syntactic written language skills of monolingual high school and college students differ consistently from those of multilingual students.
