Based primarily on empirical research from diverse multilingual and pluricultural societies from around the world, this volume offers insights into the pressures that minority language groups face while learning the majority language in the host culture. Some contributions describe and explain the variations in the levels of proficiency attained by learners of a second language in a given environment while others explore issues of bilingualism and communication evaluation.
