Bilingualism in Immigrant Children: A Preliminary Essay

By Ida Bychkov, Sonia Bychkov Green

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1996

Bilingualism is clearly a positive social phenomenon, and immigrant children should be encouraged to become and remain bilingual. There are three stages of language acquisition, and it is the family's response to the second stage, in which the child shows a preference for the new language, that will determine whether the child loses the native language or emerges as a bilingual adult.
