|Title:||Issues in Second Language Curriculum Development: Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei|

|Abstract:||Reviewed are current theoretical & practical issues of second-language learning & teaching in the national curricula of Singapore, Malaysia, & Brunei Darussalam. These three ASEAN (Assoc of South East Asian Nations) countries share four common features: all are multilingual communities with varied & complex linguistic & cultural backgrounds; they are all countries in which English has played an internal role historically; Malay is the national language of each; & bilingualism is a language policy in each country. Developments in these countries have implications for the theory & practice of first- & second-language learning. Although these countries share many similar experiences, each has developed a unique proposal for bilingual education. Implicit in all three contexts is the broader issue of language & nationhood. Questions about the connections between language & ethnicity, language & culture, & languages & identity are addressed. An annotated bibliography is provided. L. Taub.|
