Abstract

This project report focuses on the efforts made by three groups of participants to maintain the use of Chinese community languages in everyday life in Penang, Malaysia. The results suggest that the many efforts made by participants indicate that the Chinese community in Penang is keen to maintain their community languages to pass on to future generations.
