Tokuhama-Espinosa (education, U. of San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador) examines issues of multilingualism across the human lifespan--how languages are learned at different developmental stages, why this is so, and how to take advantage of this knowledge to more efficiently integrate languages into our lives. Coverage includes ten key factors in raising multicultural children; the growth of multiculturalism in the past decade, and its significance for today's children; languages across seven different stages from birth to adulthood; developing fluency in additional languages; comparisons of third-language and second-language learning; brain function of monolinguals and multilinguals; the impact of family, school, and society on language learning; and a description of the author's own family experiences with multilingualism. For parents, educators, researchers, and individuals interested in language learning. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
