The study explores whether foundational skills of reading and spelling in preschool (age 5–6) predict literacy skills cross-linguistically in an additional language in Grade 1 (age 6–7). A sample of linguistically diverse preschool children completed tasks of phonological awareness, letter-sound knowledge, verbal-short term memory, rapid automatized naming, and lexical knowledge in the language of preschool instruction Luxembourgish. The children were followed-up in Grade 1 where literacy skills were assessed in the language of schooling, i.e., German, after fve months of literacy instruction. German was a non-native language for all children. Longitudinal correlations confrm that individual diferences in single word/pseudoword reading and spelling in German in Grade 1 can be predicted by all the foundational literacy skills that were assessed in Luxembourgish. Path analyses showed that phonological awareness in Luxembourgish emerged as the strongest unique predictor of Grade 1 literacy skills in German. The second unique preschool predictor of Grade 1 literacy skills was letter-sound knowledge. Results are consistent with the view that literacy development in an additional language builds upon similar building blocks as literacy acquisition in a frst language, at least for languages that are typologically close. However, current fndings suggest that respective contributions between predictors and literacy skills in children learning to read in an additional language may vary from patterns observed in studies with children acquiring literacy in their frst language.

Das internationale Forschungsprojekt „COVID-Kids“ der Universität Luxemburg untersuchte die Erfahrungen und das Wohlbefinden von Kindern und Jugendlichen zwischen 6 und 16 Jahren während der ersten Welle der Pandemie. Die Forscherinnen boten Teilnehmern eine Umfrage von Mai bis Juli 2020 an und führten Interviews mit 22 Kindern aus Luxemburg durch. In diesem Vortrag werden die Hauptergebnisse der Studie vorgestellt. Die Pandemie führte zu einschneidenden Veränderungen im Alltag der Kinder, von denen viele Lebensbereiche betroffen waren. Schon zu Beginn der Pandemie äußerten die Teilnehmer ausgeprägte Ängste und Sorgen, die je nach Alter, Geschlecht und sozioökonomischen Status variierten. [less ▲]

The paper explores children’s perspectives of distance education, their learning experiences and school satisfac- tion in Luxembourg, Germany and Switzerland during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. The data stem from an online questionnaire completed by 1773 primary and secondary school children aged 6–16. While the paper uses quantitative and qualitative data, it aligns with the qualitative research tradition and predominantly uses an inductive approach. The findings show that teachers offered varied types of distance education and that parents supported children. The children’s contact time with teachers and their time spent on schoolwork var- ied within and between countries. Their school satisfaction dropped in the three countries. The paper calls for training and development on distant education. [less ▲]

Diagnostiquer les troubles du langage chez les enfants bilingues repré- sente un défi clinique en raison des similitudes dans le profil de compé- tence linguistique entre les enfants bilingues au développement typique et les enfants monolingues avec un trouble du langage. Les mesures de la mémoire de travail dépendent moins des connaissances accumulées que les tests de langage traditionnels et pourraient contribuer à différen- cier un trouble du langage d’une différence de langage liée aux expé- riences avec une langue.

Diagnosing language disorders in bilingual children represents a clini- cal challenge because of similarities in the language proficiency profile between typically developing bilingual children and monolingual chil- dren with a language disorder. Measures of working memory are less dependent on accumulated knowledge than traditional language tests and might help to differentiate a language disorder from a language dif- ference related to experiences with a language.

COVID-Kids Le projet COVID-Kids vise à explorer le bien-être des enfants et leurs expériences quotidiennes pendant la pandémie de Coronavirus entre mai et juillet 2020. Film 1 Écoutez les enfants et les adolescents Ce premier épisode présente le projet COVID-Kids ainsi que quelques constations clés. Il montre quatre enfants ayant vécu des expériences différentes durant la pandémie. Tandis que certains ont trouvé stressant ou ennuyeux le fait d'être à la maison, d'autres ont apprécié le temps passé en famille. L'objectif du projet COVID-Kids est d'explorer le bien-être des enfants et leurs expériences quotidiennes pendant la pandémie de Coronavirus entre mai et juillet 2020. Film 2 La peur de tomber malade Quatre enfants parlent de la peur de tomber malade. Alors que deux n'avaient pas peur, un enfant craignait qu'un membre de sa famille tombe malade et un autre s'est fait gronder par des adultes parce qu'ils pensaient qu'il s'était trop rapproché. D’autres résultats du projet sont présentés. L'objectif du projet COVID-Kids est d'explorer le bien-être des enfants et leurs expériences quotidiennes pendant la pandémie de Coronavirus entre mai et juillet 2020. Film 3 Expériences avec le travail scolaire à la maison Ce dernier film présente quelques prédicteurs du bien-être des enfants liés au travail scolaire pendant la pandémie : la quantité, la difficulté et le contenu des devoirs. Les expériences des enfants ont varié et tout le monde ne s'en est pas bien sorti.

Purpose: This study explores adolescent well-being during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in two high-income countries from Europe and one middle-income country from South America. The aim is to investigate the correlates of different dimensions of subjective well- being in 10- to 16-year-olds from different cultural contexts. Methods: An online, self-report questionnaire was completed by 1,613 adolescents in Luxembourg, Germany, and Brazil between May and July 2020. The outcome variables were measures of life satisfaction and emotional well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study included a range of sociodemographic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal covariates. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and latent variable structural equational modeling. Results: A two-factor model of subjective well-being, consisting of life satisfaction and emotional well-being latent constructs, fitted well with this sample data for Luxembourg, Germany, and Brazil. Results showed that gender, socioeconomic status, intrapersonal factors, quantity and type of schoolwork, and relationships with adults were important common predictors of individual differences in subjective well-being during COVID-19. Fear of illness emerged as the strongest correlate of emotional well-being across the three countries. Conclusions: This study indicates that girls and adolescents from low-income homes may be especially vulnerable to negative secondary impacts of COVID-19 that can affect mental health. It identified several common correlates of subjective well-being in adolescents from different cultural settings, including factors that may be changeable, such as the following: the way adults listen to adolescents, schoolwork during distant learning, and fear of illness. Findings can inform the development of quality interventions for promoting the well-being of adolescents during a global pandemic. [less ▲]
