As part of an on-going study on bilingualism, researchers at Radboud University Nijmegen are looking for parents and children to take part in their research. The study seeks to document and understand the development of children who are being raised bilingually with English and Dutch.


Is your child being raised bilingually? Do you want to learn more about the benefits of bilingualism while also contributing to research?


Radboud University is eager to hear from parents of children:

  • who are between (almost) 4 and 12 years old;
  • whose parent is a native speaker (or whose parents are native speakers) of English
  • who thus speak English with one or both parent(s).


What does it mean to participate?

  • Children: play (computer) games.
  • Parents: fill in a questionnaire.


Bilingual children might have many benefits. They might, for example, be better at:

  • comprehensive reading and abstract thinking;
  • multitasking;
  • remembering things;
  • distinguishing and using different sounds.


Is that really the case? Radboud University would like you to help them find out!
