Bilingual children 'show advantage' in noisy classrooms
Children fluent in two languages learn better in noisy classrooms than pupils who speak just one, research suggests. Bilingual and monolingual pupils at a Cambridge primary school were asked to "identify the bad animal" in a series of recorded statements. When another voice interrupted the statements, the bilingual children coped best, the study found. This shows "the importance of learning a second language early," said co-author Dr. Roberto Filippi.
