This study concerned itself with the particular difficulties that adolescent immigrants may have in adapting to school in the new country where a second language must also be learned. To explore this matter, 13 individuals who had emigrated from Hong Kong as adolescents were interviewed in order to gather their recollections of their experiences. It was found that learning French was especially difficult, due in part to their prior beginning knowledge of English and an attitudinal disposition that favored English.
