Geva, Esther; Ryan, Ellen B.
Language Learning, v43 n1 p5-42 Mar 1993
Research measured grade 5-7 children (n=73) for intelligence; reading comprehension and both static and working memory in the first (L1) and second language (L2); and linguistic knowledge in L1. Results support the notion that increased speed of basic processing in L2 facilitates higher-level processes involved in linguistic and oral communication in academic settings. (65 references) (CNP)
