Study 7A study of Spanish, English, and Bilinguals tested their ability to remember videos of motion events, both with and without verbal description. They hypothesized that Spanish speakers would have more difficulty than English speakers with remembering a motion event with multiple manners (running, walking, crawling, etc)
Researchers found that English speakers performed much better on the task. Moreover, it did not matter whether speakers of any language wrote a description of the videos or not. Finally, bilinguals performed similarly to the monolingual Spanish speakers in all conditions. In their verbal descriptions, they adhered to the Spanish verb form, which is acceptable in both languages.
