About a century ago, bilingualism was surrounded by worries. In recent years, this has changed with many researchers pointing to studies showing that bilingualism has positive effects. One of the domains where bilingual children appear to benefit from their bilingualism are the executive functions, a set of domain-general cognitive functions used for goal-oriented behavior. However, even though several studies found cognitive benefits, there are also studies reporting null effects. In this presentation, I revisit the debate on the cognitive effects of bilingualism by discussing examples from the research that I conducted together with colleagues in the Netherlands in the last five years among various groups of bilingual and bidialectal children in the Netherlands.
Der Vortrag findet im Rahmen der Vorlesung “Second Language Acquisition” statt.
