Abstract


The purpose of this work is to determine the effective way to the intellectual development of primary school-aged bilingual learners. The author has made a suggestion about the possibility to increase the intellectual capacity of pupils by means of resource of the existing bilingualism. According to this hypothesis, we have developed a system of intellectual tasks for bilingual learners in both of their languages: mother tongue (Adyghe) and non-mother tongue (Russian). The bilingual intellectual development system includes materials from all school subjects and allows going through all stages of development. In the educational process, the system is implemented in the form of fragments of studies. Intelligent training based on bilingual system material is carried out from the first grade to the fourth one. The performed experimental research brings us to the conclusion that the developed bilingual intellectual development system facilitates the development of the mental abilities of primary school-aged bilingual learners.
