Abstract [en]

This study's goal was to compare action memory performance of 170 monolinguals and 334 bilinguals in three adult age groups: middle-aged (35-45), young-old (50-65), and old-old (70-80) at two measurement occasions in a longitudinal study. The tests were free recall, cued recall (cues: verb or category) and recognition of 32 sentences. The results revealed in all condition there was: a) a bilinguality advantage; b) a superiority of SPTs over VTs; c) a substantial decline of performance in both bilingual and monolingual old-old adults. It was concluded that bilingualism may play an important role in developing more effective learning strategies.

Key words: “elderly bilingual”, “action memory”, “longitudinal study”
