Researchers may just be seeing the tip of the iceberg when assessing the impact of bilingualism, and many questions remain. Chief among them is whether an older, monolingual person could benefit from studying a second language.

 

Bialystok is convinced the answer is yes, even if the performance boost is less pronounced than for those who grew up bilingual. “Learn a language at any age, not to become bilingual, but just to remain mentally stimulated,” she says. “That’s the source of cognitive reserve'"

An open question in working with bilingual children who have language impairment is the extent to which they make gains in each of their two languages. We can look to children with typical development to document what we should expect through regular schooling and home interactions, and we can also track children with language impairment. We did this through looking at children’s retells in Spanish and English. Children included those with and without language impairment and they were followed from kindergarten to first grade.
