Excellent literature review for academics.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Bilingualism in Development: Language, Literacy, and Cognition (Paperback)
Bialystok describes and critically reviews the research evidence in this complex and controversial area: how bilingualism affects children's development. Divergent theories and constructs are exposed and interpreted with scientific precision and clarity, particularly in relation to language acquistion, literacy skills and problem solving abilities in preschool children. An excellent resource for researchers and academics working in the area but psychological terminology and an academic tone make the text less accesible to parents of bilingual children or lay people interested in bilingulism.
