Abstract For children learning their mother tongue, class is always in session. Drawing on the knowledge of linguist Marc Wimet, the Sorbonne's Jean Pierre Goudailler, and Benedicte de Boysson-Bardies, author of How Language Comes to Children, this program looks at the process of language acquisition at home, at school, and among peers in both city and suburban settings. Standard French and slang are each considered. A must for understanding how students of a variety of ages can best learn language skills.
