The Bilingual Advantage : Language, Literacy and the US Labor Market Paperback / softback

Edited by Rebecca M. Callahan, Patricia C. Gandara

Part of the Bilingual Education & Bilingualism series


The Bilingual Advantage draws together researchers from education, economics, sociology, anthropology and linguistics to examine the economic and employment benefits of bilingualism in the US labor market, countering past research that shows no such benefits exist.

Collectively, the authors draw on novel methodological approaches and new data to examine the economics of bilingualism for the new generation of bilinguals entering a digital-age globalized workforce.

The authors also pay considerable attention to how to best capture measures of bilingualism and biliteracy, given the constraints of most existing datasets.
