Why are we doing this study?

To investigate the differences between bilingual and monolingual children (and within the group of bilinguals) in various aspects related to their language development.

How is this study done?

  • If you agree to participate, this study will take between 30-45 minutes.
  • You will particpate in this study over Zoom.
  • Your child will play some fun interactive games through the screen (Zoom session will be recorded.)
  • Your child will play between 2-3 different games depending on their age and language exposure.
  • Before we meet on Zoom, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaires (at home, online) regarding your language history (the questionnaire takes about 20 minutes.)
