Abstract

This paper investigates the family language policy of a Chinese immigrant family living in Flanders. Interviews and interactional data shed light on how the parents plan their children’s language education within the home context and the factors that influence their choices in this regard. The data also reveal the extent to which the parents are successful at implementing their policy, which is continuously being negotiated interactionally by both the parents and their children, giving rise to an incipient hybrid family language repertoire.
