Published on

The author presents a taxonomy of bilingualism for language teaching, parenting, and research in Japan, divided into five levels: the individual (bilingual development), family (bilingual child-raising), societal (language policies, groups, etc.), school (bilingual education), and academic (disciplinary) level. Bilingualism is shown to have various meanings and applications to Japan. A lively Q&A session is anticipated.
