Abstract
The objective of this study is to identify the way the bilingual families decide their own language policy through language ideology, language practice and language management. This research applied qualitative approach through observation, questionnaire and in depth interview. The data were collected from bilingual families that use minority (ethnic language) and dominant (national language). The research findings showed that bilingual families use language ideology, language practice and language management as the components of language policy. Nevertheles mostly parents considered language ideology and language practice. It is just that in practice, parents do not understand well what kind of strategy they should apply to their children. Thus, the language use chosen by parents to be used by family members goes without good planning. It means that language management were not applied by parents completely, it can be seen through language that their children use will be different with what the parents have expected.
