    Results from Multivariate Analysis of Covariance showed that bilinguals are more advanced in their cognitive as well as theory-of-mind development after the effects of 3 covariates (age, verbal and nonverbal abilities) were taken into account. Further analysis with Hierarchical Multiple Linear Regressions suggested that bilinguals" advantage in theory-of-mind development mostly hinges on their advantage in cognitive development (e.g., inhibitory control, reasoning, and metalinguistic awareness). Educational implications as well as suggestions for further studies were also discussed.This study investigated Chinese-English bilinguals" theory-of-mind development. It draws on the literatures of two related areas of research of young children"s development: children"s theory of mind and childhood bilingualism.The present study planned to verify the following statement: Bilinguals are more advanced in their cognitive as well as theory-of-mind development. The aim was achieved by comparing 31 balanced bilingual preschoolers" and 29 monolingual preschoolers" performance on 3 cognitive tasks and 4 theory-of-mind tasks. The 3 cognitive tasks employed included 1 reasoning task (Dimensional Change Card Sort Task) and 2 metalinguistic awareness tasks (Moving Word Task and Synonym Production Task).

    A bilingual individual is traditionally defined as someone who understands and produces two or more languages on a regular basis. A bilingual individual's initial exposure to both languages may start in early childhood, e.g. before age 3, but exposure may also begin later in life. Equal proficiency in a bilingual individuals's languages is rarely attested as it typically varies by domain. parental-child book reading activities and the children’s vocabulary development and reading acquisition for monolingual English children (e.g. Farrant & Zubrick, & Bus, van Ijzenddorn, & Pellergrini, ). However, limited studies have been done for the effects of parent-child book reading activities for Chinese-English bilingual children.

      This is a quite straight forward process, even if critics like to make it seem rather complicated. However, the human brain is proven benefited with a bilingual mind, and many bilinguals including myself, believe being raised in two languages is a . It makes a lot of sense then for educators (and others) to familiarise themselves with the basic science underpinning what we know about bilingual language development. Albert Costa’s book is an excellent place to start. Major findings in bilingualism research. Costa was a talented researcher, whose work addressed key questions in bilingualism.

In most instances, the only advantage recognized for the bilingual individual is the ability to use two or more languages. Beyond that, monolingualism seems more attractive, and monolinguals especially those speaking a language of.

Since theory of mind deficit is a prevailing hypothesis for pragmatic difficulties in monolingual children with ASD, it is worthwhile to investigate whether the same is true for bilingual children with ASD.

In the typically-developing population, there is evidence suggesting that bilingual children have advantages in theory of mind development. In this study, researchers compared six-year-old children belonging to 4 groups (English monolinguals, Chinese-English bilinguals, French-English bilinguals, Spanish-English bilinguals) on a series of tasks in order to determine the effect of bilingualism on development.

The present study investigates the link between bilingualism, Theory of Mind and empathy among mono- and bilinguals. We hypothesize that bilinguals have better theory of mind capabilities and empathic skills. Possible explanations for this evidence of a bilingual advantage are the early exposure to a second language and/or greater inhibitory control.

Weber-Fox and Neville () provide another study on this subject. They investigated semantic and syntactic processing in 61 Chinese-English bilinguals (Weber-Fox & Neville, ).

Methodology and Participants: The authors of this study tested six year olds, attending public school in Toronto, on multitasking ability as well as vocabulary development and acquisition of grammar rules.

Participants included monolingual English speaking children, Spanish-English bilinguals, French-English bilinguals, and Chinese-English. Thirdly, Chinese-English bilinguals differed from immigrant bilinguals who live in English speaking countries or more English friendly environment (as in Canada, United States, India, some African countries and others) in that they learnt and spoke English mostly inside their classrooms as they considered English as a foreign language.

The second part concerns language and cognition in bilinguals. Following an introductory overview and contributions from established figures in the field, bilingual cognition researchers provide examples of their latest research on topics including time, space, motion, colors, and emotion.

Two other studies have found that late Chinese–English bilinguals engaged a region thought to be critical for reading Chinese (i.e., left MFG) in an English word reading task (Nelson, Liu, Fiez, & Perfetti, ) and an English word rhyming task (Tan et al., ), in comparison with a group of English monolinguals who showed substantial.
