How important is age of onset to the second language for bilingual acquisition? What is the role of amount and quality of exposure on language learning? What educational practices should be advised to parents and teachers of bilingual children? How does bilingual acquisition differ in children and adults? This project aims at offering some new insights into these issues, with a particular focus on Czech and English.
Our studies are conducted with a series of different methodologies and we work with infants, primary school children and adults. Our activities are child-friendly and typically measure reaction times and/or eye-movements while performing linguistic tasks.
