Although this, of course, does not mean that the majority language need be spoken in the home, the parents' knowledge of the majority language will help them to provide opportunities for their children to learn this language and enable them to understand what is going on in their children's lives.

This often had the effect of disqualifying many children from participation in the studies because they were not "bilingual enough". This situation has caused a number of researchers to suggest that in order to achieve such a high degree of bilingualism, some degree of intelligence is probably necessary.
