A Study of Bilingual Chinese/English Children's Code Switching Behavior  
This paper reports the findings from a study that explores young 
Chinese/English bilingual children’s code switching behavior in 
a Chinese language program.  In particular, it describes one 
bilingual child’s patterns of language use.  The findings suggest 
that code switching was used as a communicative device by the 
children in the study.  They switched languages during their 
speech in order to realize social function, pragmatic function, 
and meta-linguistic function.  Educational implications are also 
provided.
