Digital Advantage: Bilingual Arabic English Web Searchers Outperform Monolingual Arabic Speakers

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Internet users must be digitally literate to successfully utilize Web resources. Age, education, gender, and Web habits are related to digital literacy, but there have been few attempts to explore what difference language proficiency makes for surfing the Web efficiently. We predicted and found that bilingual Arabic English speaking Web searchers were more digitally literate than monolingual Arabic speakers using observational methods, suggesting that bilingualism does improve digital literacy levels among native Arabic speakers.
