Bilingual Education Helps to Improve the Intelligence of Children

Mai Thanh Nguyen


This study uses an IQ test to test the “intelligence” of two pupil groups: one is studying the bilingual program and the
other is learning the monolingual program plus English subject as a foreign language. The study discovers that both
groups have increased the IQ score after seven months at schools. This result proves that IQ scores are not fixed
but can increase through ages of children from 6 to 11 as well as through education. However, the group of
bilingual pupils has higher increase of IQ scores in comparison with the monolingual group, proving the bilingual
education can help to better improve the intelligence of children. This is agreeable with the results of many
previous researches.
