abstract

  • © 2019, National Taiwan Normal University. Translanguaging, as an approach to language, bilingualism, and bilingual education, considers all linguistic resources available to learners without partitioning their use and is essential for promoting student learning in the twenty-first century. Knowledge of university students’ beliefs about language use must be uncovered and examined; however, existing research has predominantly investigated perceptions of students in universities outside of the USA. In the present study, graduate students’ views about translanguaging practices were examined. Data were collected through a survey instrument and then analyzed using descriptive statistics. Results show that graduate students’ beliefs about translanguaging are highly positive, particularly for social settings and L2 learnings.
