Summary

This evaluation investigated three different types of language programs: bilingual education programs, "ethnic" school programs and mainstream programs where indigenous and community languages are taught as single subjects. Programs included speakers of Arabic, Khmer, Italian, Chinese, Noongar and Yindjibarndi and projects took place in NSW, WA and Victoria. This comprehensive report describes the different types of programs and includes transcripts of interviews with teachers and participants. The report revealed that, while there were features common to all programs other factors caused widespread differences. These included: culture, gender, religion, historical differences, national histories and methods and practice of teaching and learning. The document also includes a resources section (handouts and OHTs) that can be used to present information about the value and characteristics of community language programs.
