Early Dual Language Learning
Genesee, Fred
Zero to Three, v29 n1 p17-23 Sep 2008
Parents and child care personnel in English-dominant parts of the world often express misgivings about raising children bilingually. Their concerns are based on the belief that dual language learning during the infant-toddler stage confuses children, delays their development, and perhaps even results in reduced language competence. In this article, the author describes some of these concerns, reviews pertinent research, and offers suggestions about dual language learning during the infant-toddler period.
