Jim Cummins grew up speaking Irish and English, and has drawn on that experience to develop innovative practices of teaching bilingual children, mostly in Canada. British psychologists and educators apply his ideas to the educational assessment of children who alternate between two or more languages every day, and will eventually have to be proficient in all of them in order to communication with people who are important in their lives.
