This study is an examination of preschool-age English speaking children’s interactive play behaviors with a non-English speaking child (NEC). The play types of a NEC were reported using the Parten’s categories of solitary, parallel, and interactive play. In addition, English-speaking children’s interactive play with a non-English speaking child were reported in this study using categories of affiliative, possession-related, prosocial, and aggressive behavior from Ramsey’s 1987 study.
