Translation 3: Systematic evidence comes from psychologist Elisa Newport and her colleagues. They tested it on Chinese and Korean-born students from the universities of Illinois, who had lived in the US for at least 10 years. These immigrants were given a list of 276 simple English questions, half of which contained few grammatical errors. These immigrants who arrived in the US at the ages of 3-7 present themselves as students who were born in the US. Those who arrived aged 8-15 do worse because they arrived late, and those who arrived aged 17-39 do the worst, and show a large difference regardless of their immigration age.
