Abstract

A brief narrative description of the journal article, document, or resource. In Britain, 30 bilingual 7-year olds were given phonological awareness tasks separately in English and Panjabi. Results suggested that assessment of preliteracy skills in bilingual children is useful only if carried out in both of their languages.
