The study draws on a large-scale language survey of undergraduate students, as well as qualitative language data collected at one of Singapore’s leading universities. The findings reveal how Singaporean students are able to shift between various languages inside and outside their classrooms, and may also have relevance for a range of other multilingual contexts, particularly in relation to language use in higher education.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/138581||ISBN:||978-3-030-14385-5||DOI:||10.1007/978-3-030-14386-2_3||Rights:||© 2019 Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
