Insightful information helpful in teaching students from the Asian groups covered. Includes cultural as well as linguistic information. A must have book for resource teachers needing resources to provide teachers with new arrivals to US schools. I used it as an EL resource teacher for 25 years and bought this copy to share with teachers now that I'm retired.

I bought this book for my bilingual therapy course. It is a great book to learn about different Asian languages, but there are some typos kind of disturbing.
