"This thesis reports a case study using “One parent, One Language” communicative strategy with a one-year-old child. This study was carried out in Puebla in different contexts. The main purpose of our research was to investigate the different communicative strategies used by bilingual parents to raise their child bilingually and then to use that information to explore language learning in our son. The research data were collected by observation formats one for each language in order to keep a sequence and organization in the events during the research time. Those formats describe important issues like, date, context and child’s progress in the learning of commands. The research found that there are different strategies that could be adapted to the characteristics of the child, parents and contexts. Also we found these strategies as helpful tool for bilingual parents. About “one parent, one language” strategy we will show the final number of commands the child acquired in English and Spanish. We also found the importance of the consistency in the application of the strategy. Those data show the progress the child had in English and Spanish and the differences and similarities between the language acquisition processes."
