A study has found that people who speak at least one language at home are more likely to stay home when it comes to their kids’ school work, and that parents who speak multiple languages are more willing to help their kids when they’re struggling.
In a new study published by the journal Science, researchers found that adults who spoke at least three languages at home were significantly more likely than those who spoke fewer to stay at home with their kids on a daily basis, according to a study released Monday.
The study was conducted by researchers from the University of Sydney’s School of Psychology and led by Associate Professor Daniel Fauci of the University’s School for Advanced Education.
The researchers also found that parents were more likely when their children were struggling to learn a foreign language.
When it came to staying at home, people who spoke three languages in the home were actually more likely overall to stay away than those whose children spoke one language, Fauji said.
“Our study indicates that parents of young children who speak several languages, and whose children are in school, are more supportive of their children’s learning,” Fauvi said.
The research was published in the journal Language Learning & Development.
The findings come after a recent study found that more than half of U.S. school children speak more than one foreign language at school.
While the majority of U,S.
students who use multiple languages in school are bilingual, the study shows that parents are also likely to help.
“The researchers found a significant relationship between the level of communication between the parents and the level at which their children are using different languages at school,” Fazio said.
In the study, participants were asked to rate the difficulty of a foreign-language task they’d been asked to complete.
The survey asked participants to rank the level they felt the task was difficult.
For example, if a person was told to type the letter H in English, the person would rate the task as “easy.”
If the person was asked to type it as “he/she should,” the person said the task had “moderate difficulty.”
If a person had to type “it/it should,” they said the work was “difficult.”
“We find that parents can provide additional support for their children in challenging tasks, and also have a stronger impact on their children,” Fausi said.
Researchers also found a correlation between parents’ willingness to help and the ability to translate for their kids.
“In addition, we find that these results suggest that parents also can provide greater encouragement to their children by encouraging them to use their own languages,” Fanci said, “and that children who have greater parental motivation and support can also benefit from bilingual instruction.”
The study also showed that children in households with multiple languages, especially those who speak two languages, were more successful at learning a foreign tongue.
“These findings suggest that bilingual parents are not only more successful in the language learning process but also provide greater parental support to their child in both language learning and learning a second language,” Fauris said.
