Review research in the field and outline benefits / drawbacks to bilingualism in individuals. Give examples (either from the research you’ve read or from personal stories) to support each claim. Finally, you should give your opinion about what you’ve learned and make recommendations based on your opinion.
Case study – Find a bilingual person (or one who USED to be bilingual) and interview her about her language history. Analyze the acquisition (or loss) of her languages in terms of the concepts we have studied about types of bilinguals. Consider the effect of her language environment on her language development, her need for her various languages, and predict the development (or loss) of language in the future. (You can even do a case study on YOURSELF!)
Review research in the field and outline various factors leading to bi- or multi-lingualism in families. Give examples from your reading – at least one example should be in the Japanese context, but try to include other examples from around the world. Give your conclusion and opinion about what you’ve learned, and if your research can help predict anything connected to families in Japan.
Case study - Find a family with members who use more than one language between them. Interview at least one of the family members about the family’s language use patterns. It may be useful to ask if the family members are satisfied with all members’ degree of bilingualism, and to learn about any regrets or successes they may have had. Analyze the family’s language use patterns in terms of the concepts we have studied about types of bilinguals (what type of language speaker is each family member? Monolingual? Subtractive bilingual? etc.)
Compare and contrast the governmental language policies of at least one monolingual nation and one nation with more than one official language (for example, you could compare/contrast Japan and Canada). Analyze the strengths and weaknesses of these general policies. In the case of monolingual nations, are they equipped to participate in international relations? In the case of nations with more than one official language, are the language policies effective? Give examples to support your analysis. Give your opinion about what you have learned and make recommendations based on your opinion.
Investigate a language minority group in Japan. Outline the history of their connection to Japan, the circumstances of their immigration, their status in society now, and what kinds of language support are available for their mother tongue. Give your opinion about the situation of the group in today’s society and make recommendations based on your opinion.
Outline the second language education options available in Japan. Discuss their merits and demerits. Give your opinion about second language education in Japan and make recommendations based on your opinion.
Compare and contrast second language education in two countries. Discuss the merits and demerits of the two systems. Give your opinion about the two systems and make recommendations based on your opinion.
Investigate and explain immersion education and how it is different from second language education (such as English education in Japan). Discuss its merits and demerits. Give your opinion – do you think Japan should try to adopt an immersion education model for English education? Make recommendations based on your opinion.
