Fred Genesee, Ph.D.

Fred Genesee, Ph.D. Biography: Dr. Genesee is the author of nine books and numerous articles in scientific, professional, and popular journals and publications. He has carried out extensive research on alternative approaches to bilingual education, including second/foreign language immersion programs for language majority students and alternative forms of bilingual education for language minority students. This work has systematically documented the longitudinal language development (oral and written) and academic achievement of students educated through the media of two languages — their home language and another language. Along with Donna Christian and Liz Howard, Dr. Genesee is currently involved in a longitudinal study of a number of two-way immersion programs in the United States of America. He has consulted with poicy groups in Canada, Estonia, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Russia, Spain, and the United States on issues related to second language teaching and learning in school-age learners. Dr. Genesee is also interested in basic issues related to language learning, representation, and use in bilingual children. His work in this domain focuses on simultaneous acquisition of two languages during early infancy and childhood; his specific interests include language representation (lexical and syntactic) in early stages of bilingual acquisition, transfer in bilingual development, structural and functional characteristics of child bilingual code-mixing, and communication skills in young bilingual children. A new line of research will examine the language/speech processing skills of preverbal bilingual and second language infants. Collectively, this work seeks to extend understanding of the limits of the human faculty for language acquisition, which, to date, has been based primarily on studies of monolingual acquisition.
