“Bilinguals find it easier to learn a third language, as they gain a better aptitude for languages, a new study from the University of Haifa reveals. The study also found that Russian speakers had a better grasp of Hebrew than Hebrew speakers themselves. – Learning a mother tongue and preserving it does not compromise the ability to learn an additional language. The opposite is true: Knowing Russian enforces Hebrew fluency and command of both languages increases skills in English, the researchers noted.”

Un nuevo estudio de la Universidad de Haifa incide en la ya conocida ventaja de las personas bilingües para aprender una tercera lengua.

Preservar la lengua materna no es una amenaza para aprender nuevas lengua sino todo lo contrario, dicen los investigadores.

Salim Abu-Rabia y Ekaterina Sanitsky comprobaron que, comparando dos grupos de alumnos/as de 6º, unos hablantes del ruso y el hebreo como segunda lengua, los otros hablantes del hebreo solamente,  al aprender inglés el grupo de los bilingües ruso-hebreo obtenía mejores resultados e incluso eran mejores en hebreo.

“Gaining command of a number of languages improves proficiency in native languages. This is because languages reinforce one another, and provide tools to strengthen phonologic, morphologic and syntactic skills. These skills provide the necessary basis for learning to read. Our study has also shown that applying language skills from one language to another is a critical cognitive function that makes it easier for an individual to go through the learning process successfully. Hence, it is clear that tri-lingual education would be most successful when started at a young age and when it is provided with highly structured and substantive practice, explained Prof. Abu-Rabia.”

Concluye Abu-Rabia que la educación trilingüe sería más exitosa si se comenzase a una edad temprana y si fuera acompañada por una altamente estructurada y sustantiva práctica. Muy importante, subrayo yo.
