外语的魔力 双语让儿童更有创造力

  Bilingual children outperform children who only speak one language in problem-solving skills and creative thinking, according to research led at the University of Strathclyde.

  斯特拉斯克莱德大学的一项研究表明,双语儿童在解决问题的能力和创造性思维等方面,都比单语儿童要更优秀。

  A study of primary school pupils who spoke English or Italian- half of whom also spoke Gaelic or Sardinian- found that the bilingual children were significantly more successful in the tasks set for them. The Gaelic-speaking children were, in turn, more successful than the Sardinian speakers.

  对说英语或意大利语的小学生-其中有一半还会说盖尔语或撒丁语——进行的研究表明,双语儿童明显比单语儿童更能成功地完成任务。而会说盖尔语的儿童比会说撒丁语的儿童则要更加成功。

  The differences were linked to the mental alertness required to switch between languages, which could develop skills useful in other types of thinking. The further advantage for Gaelic-speaking children may have been due to the formal teaching of the language and its extensive literature.

  双语儿童和单语儿童之间的差异主要是与在语言间转换所需的思维敏捷性有关,这种思维敏捷性会促进养成一些对其他类型思维方式有用的技能。而会说盖尔语的儿童更有优势,这可能是因为这种语言进行了正式讲授并存在着大量的文献。
