Research on “Bilingualism as a Factor at Developing Reading and Writing Skills in the Bosnian Language” was conducted at the International Primary School in Sarajevo, where we meet children who speak two, and occasionally three languages. How they acquire and master the language is interesting, and in particular, how they acquire the beginning level reading and writing skills of the Bosnian language. This study attempted to determine whether bilingual students were more proficient or less proficient than monolingual students at developing reading and writing skills in the Bosnian language.
Key words: bilingualism, Bosnian language, reading, writing
