Research offers support of young dual-language learners
Spanish remains the most commonly spoken language in the United States after English. Research finds that children benefit from growing up bilingual, but how can schools and parents help kids dominate both languages? The friends at the Puerto Rican Action Board's Raritan Gardens Preschool greet each other in English and Spanish; two of the many languages spoken by children at the preschool in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Milagros Nores, PhD, is the co-director of the National Institute for Early Education Research. She said this preschool program supports dual-language learners effectively.
