This chapter concludes the study by presenting guidelines for the successful implementation of trilingual education in Hong Kong’s primary schools. We list the limitations of the study and conclude it by arguing that individual schools are best judges of which model of trilingual education they should adopt, as they best know the specific contexts in which they operate.
