dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to show that bilinguals experience reverse interference, interference from a second language (L2) to a first language (L1). This was done by the use of a questionnaire given to fifty-two bilinguals. The results were tabulated with the help of the computer and then analysed according to the major questions which were the following: Do all bilinguals have reverse interference? When does this interference occur? How does the interference manifest itself? Finally, how is the bilingual's daily language use involved?The questionnaire results showed that reverse interference exists. Additionally, it revealed that there are major factors relating to interference which were degree of bilingualism, location of residence, methods of learning L2, and the language of college education.
