abstract

Cultural Intelligence is defined as the capacity to interact in an efficient and positive way in multicultural environments. Cultural Intelligence has been studied also in relation with adult bi/multilingualism. Studies which focus on the correlation between Cultural Intelligence and early bilingualism are still lacking. The present study, in spite of having been conducted on a restricted number of subjects, may enlighten the fact that knowing a foreign language even at a beginner stage may empowers the child in regards to Cultural Intelligence and in a global world as we are living in, it could be a valuable input to reflect on in an attempt to create new generations that are adequately intelligent to interact in an increasingly multicultural environment.
