Abstract

The cognitive, linguistic, and academic skills of two groups of children following an innovative bilingual education program were examined. These fifth and sixth grade anglophone children, who are being educated in French, are compared to groups of English and French students who are educated in their native language. The results indicate that the Experimental children are similar to their English Controls in terms of academic, linguistic and cognitive skills. In terms of French skills, they function extremely well in their second language although they do not possess native-like proficiency.
