Abstract: 
This chapter reports on research conducted in Singapore that revisits a two-year study on the lived literacy experience of eight Malay children who were preschoolers when the researcher first met them. 12 years on, the researcher reunited with two of them who were then young adults. Employing a sociocultural approach to literacy, this chapter wades through data from both phases of the study in an attempt to answer the question: How do the children navigate between languages during their childhood, what are the challenges they face to be biliterate in school-sanctioned ways, to what extent these relate to school outcome, and what are the different language and literate identities they assumed or embraced in the process? Implications for schooling and education are discussed.

Bab ini melaporkan tentang kajian yang dijalankan di Singapura yang meninjau semula kajian dua tahun tentang pengalaman literasi yang dilalui lapan kanak-kanak Melayu yang menuntut di prasekolah semasa pengkaji pertama kali bertemu dengan mereka. 12 tahun kemudian, pengkaji bertemu semula dengan dua daripada mereka yang ketika itu mula melangkah ke alam dewasa. Menggunakan pendekatan sosiobudaya terhadap literasi, bab ini menelusuri data daripada kedua-dua fasa kajian dalam usaha untuk menjawab soalan: Bagaimanakah kanak-kanak bernavigasi antara bahasa semasa zaman kanak-kanak mereka, apakah cabaran yang mereka hadapi untuk menjadi dwiliterat mengikut cara yang dibenarkan sekolah, apakah cabaran yang dihadapi oleh kanak-kanak ini, sejauh mana ia berkaitan dengan pencapaian di sekolah, dan apakah identiti bahasa dan literasi yang mereka dukung dalam proses itu? Implikasi terhadap persekolahan dan pendidikan dibincangkan.
