This chapter will briefly summarize research findings concerning what is known about both the positive and negative effects of bilingualism. The effects of bilingualism on the following areas, among others, have been studied by researchers: intelligence; cognitive development; language development; social development. Bilingualism and Intelligence The study of the effects of bilingualism on intelligence has long interested psychologists and educators. The earliest study was carried out in Wales in 1923.

English has become the dominant language, and the children are now fully indistinguishable from native English-speaking children. We consider this to be a desirable, and indeed essential, basis for their personal development in this country, for both psychological and educational reasons" (Hoffman, 1985: 493494). Results from Studies of Families Where Both Parents Speak the Minority Language As was mentioned earlier, families in which both parents have emigrated from the same country often achieve better results with regard to maintaining the minority language in the home than the mixed-language family does.

Up to the present moment I can suggest an answer only in relative terms. We have succeeded in establishing a degree of linguistic competence in German and Spanish which is sufficient for all everyday practical purposes and which is also an adequate basis for the personal and emotional interaction between the children and the parents. As the children grow up, we hope that their linguistic proficiency will provide direct access to the respective cultures. English has become the dominant language, and the children are now fully indistinguishable from native English-speaking children.
