Álvarez de la Fuente, Esther; Fernández Fuertes, Raquel; Arratia García, Óscar – Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2019

This has been shown to be so in a variety of language pairs, regardless of children's social and family situations and both within the family context as well as between the family and society (e.g. Álvarez de la Fuente and Fernández Fuertes 2012. "How two…
