The aim of this paper is to analyze and to describe the narrative competence of bilingual children, who speak both Chinese and French and are living in France. This study is focused on two aspects: the differences in narrative competence of the two languages of bilingual children aged 5 to 10 years old and the development of the narrative competence of this group. In the research, the narrative competence of children in both languages will be measured by using an object-oriented story.
