Listening comprehension is the minimal competence a person regarded as bilingual has in at least two languages Klein, A passive bilingual is one who can only manage this skill in the second language, while he or she copes with it with ease, including the other three skills in his or her first language Klein, Speaking is the ability which most dominant and balanced bilinguals, as well as equilinguals, have.
Reading comprehension is the threshold, and many dominant bilinguals lack competence in this skill for their second language Klein, Writing skills can be expected from balanced bilinguals and equilinguals, which show its difficultness compared to other language skills Klein, Whether bilinguals want it or not, many of them grow in multilingual environments. The conditions and circumstances in which bilinguals grow vary considerably from person to person; therefore, the process to acquire multiple language skills also varies from person to person.
By acquiring two languages simultaneously in their childhood, or by learning a second language sometime after their first language acquisition, people may become bilingual Linguistic Society of America, According to the Linguistic Society of America, bilinguals in the U. Children from international marriage parents or children with parents who each have different language backgrounds are likely to become bilingual as well. Not just their parents, but also other significant people like a grandparent or a caretaker consistently speaking a different language have great influence on the children, which leads them to the acquisition of a sequent language Linguistic Society of America, A young child needs to be exposed regularly in both languages, but just growing up in a two-language environment in an early age does not necessarily result in becoming a bilingual.
The exposure to both languages needs to involve interaction Linguistic Society of America, This means that a child exposed to a language only through television or other audio-visual media will not be able to acquire it, but a child who is spoken the language regularly by somebody will. Many people believe that there is a critical period for learning a new language to the extent to become native-like, but this idea is not necessarily accurate. This is true in terms of grammar and vocabulary learning, what even a monoglot practices in his or her speaking language.
Thus, everyone has the potential to become bilingual, regardless of age. Better cognitive functions are observed in bilingual children when they switch the language by understanding what is going on around them. Once a child becomes bilingual, he or she acquires a new sequent language with ease, applying the linguistic skills they have already obtained through their two-language environment.
Torry Miller states that the beneficial skills they have are the ability to easily learn new words, to spot the rhymes and connections between words and phrases, to categorize words, and to communicate smoothly and efficiently As aging societies increase in many countries in the world, people have a sense of crisis about senile dementia, but studies show that bilingualism can confront these frightening diseases. When talking about Bilingualism, people tend to point out just the benefits and advantages, but in fact, there are some disadvantages to keep in mind, though most of these detriments were denied in the past century.
This was based on the idea that since the brain of a bilingual has to process twice the information compared to that of a monolingual, it would be inevitable for them to have weaker verbal skills, including the lack of vocabulary in any semantic category. Above all, Semilingualism was considered a serious problem and risk a child being in a two-language environment could have.
hemslatidoti.ga According to Hugo Baetens Beardsmore, a Belgic linguist, Semiligual refers to those whose ability shows signs of considerable retardation in both languages A semilingual has little competence in either language, which means that he or she is not able to sufficiently command even a single language, but has partial abilities in two or more languages Ministry of Education, New Zealand, However, experts from New Zealand Ministry of Education claim that the proficiency in languages should not be rashly compared between bilinguals because they use their languages for different purposes and events, and its context may vary Moreover, the language ability of children living in a two-language environment is not fixed yet, having great potential to perfectly acquire both languages in the future.
Many bilinguals suffer from a sense of not belonging to the society, which is considered a more serious issue, rather than the uncertain negative effects to their intellectual aspects. In many cases, bilingual children grow in an environment where they belong to different ethnic roots, or have distinct cultural customs Linguistic Society of America, It gets even more difficult for them to establish their cultural identity when the environment is not tolerant of diversity. The feel of alienation from the society can result in psychological stress and oppression, even though the advantages are worth the expected problems.
Despite the strongly claimed benefits and advantages of being bilingual, bilinguals experience difficult challenges. Thanks to the studies practiced in the past century, the taxonomy of Bilingualism has developed, and the process of becoming bilingual has become clear. All the obstacles that stand in your way are worthwhile overcoming.
Beardsmore, Hugo Baetens.
