Abstract

This paper discusses managing linguistic diversity through an informal and non formal education. Findings of interviews and observations, analysed through grounded theory process were gathered from interviews and observations of three young Malaysian children attending a mainstream school in the United Kingdom. Data were triangulated with interviews with the children's mothers and class teacher. The children talked about their experiences using the language and observed 'getting the language' while playing and interacting with their friends and adults inside and outside of school and television, Play Station and computer. This implies linguistic diversity can be managed through informal and non formal.
