Contributions from many fields, (e.g., psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, anthropology, and developmental psychology) provide perspectives for analysis of language acquisition and learning, evaluation of current educational practice, and planning for effective classroom experiences. Transfer strategies from primary language reading skills into English language reading skills are presented based on the tenets of effective language acquisition.
