Different "Chinese" Playing Together: The Intra-Group Relationships and Interactions in a Multilingual Preschool Classroom

This study describes and analyzes the peer social world within the Chinese group in a multilingual preschool classroom, focusing on the ways Chinese children organize their interactions with each other and with other ethnic groups and how subcultural group differences are related to peer relationships. Most of the children in this class had peers with whom they could converse in their home languages. There were seven Chinese children speaking different dialects, and one spoke English in preference to her limited Mandarin.
