ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to examine and to compare between bilingual environment children and monolingual environment children in language age and MLU-m characteristics. Subjects included 26 children of 3 to 6 years old in the bilingual environment, and 24 children of monolingual environment. The results of this study was as following.First, there was some significant difference between bilingual environment children and monolingual environment children in 5 years of receptive age. But there was no significant difference between groups and ages in expressive age. There were some significant differences in receptive age and expressive age among ages in bilingual environment children in results of one-way ANOVA.Second, there was no significant difference between bilingual environment children and monolingual environment children in MLU-m. There was some significant difference between 3 years and 5 years in bilingual environment children in MLU-m in results of one-way ANOVA. These results showed that bilingual environment children delayed than monolingual environment children in language development, though their language competence growed like monolingual environment children. So bilingual environment children need some mediation for their language development.
