In this article, the writer discusses that minority populations continue to increase within the United States, with the most significant statistical increases found within the Latino and African-American communities. From the perspective of English language acquisition, the Latino community is of greater interest due to two key factors. The writer points out that approximately 5 percent of the annual growth rate within the Latino community occurs from immigration of adults, adolescents, and children who have learned Spanish as their primary language. The writer also notes that children born within the Latino community are often raised in a household and a community setting in which Spanish is the preferred language; while the child may be born in America, their initial exposure to language is not necessarily English. This paper provides a comprehensive literature review on these issues and their impact on the education of the student learning English.
