Bilingual Memory: The Interaction of Language and Thought.
Haritos, Calliope; Nelson, Katherine
Bilingual Research Journal, v25 n4 p605-26 Fall 2001
A study examined how languages affect memory for narrative. Forty bilingual children aged 8-9 listened to a story in either English or Greek, and then retold it in English or Greek. Unexpectedly, children who heard the story in English and retold it in Greek had significantly better story recall than other groups. Educational implications are discussed. (Contains 44 references.)
