"In clear and elegant prose, Lucy Tse debunks prevalent myths about English-language learning among immigrant children." - Jim Cummins, University of Toronto; "Lucy Tse is among the few to explain the causes and consequences of language loss in human terms. Her perceptive, readable, and thoroughly documented study should be on the bookshelf of every educator of immigrant students." - James Crawford, author of At War with Diversity: U.S. Language Policy in an Age of Anxiety
