The role of input in bilingual development

by Dr. Cathy Cohen / Nov 6, 2016

The role of input in bilingual development

Drawing on two studies, conducted at an international school in France, which explore the role of input in the development of dual language proficiency (French & English), numerous factors are considered for children’s balanced dual language acquisition. These include the quantity and quality of current and cumulative input and output, as well as factors related to social contexts, such as SES, language choice with peers, language used for school instruction, language attitudes and cultural identity.
