Stroop task has been widely used to examine the within and between language effect among bilinguals. This research aims to investigate the influence of exposure to an article before the Stroop task on the performance of bilinguals. Chinese-English bilingual undergraduates were recruited for this experiment. Both the articles and Stroop tasks are provided in two languages, Chinese and English. A programed Stroop task was used to record the reaction times in different conditions. There was only one main effect found between the article and the reaction time, regardless of the language used in the article and during the Stroop test. However, there might still be confounding variables which could be eliminated. Therefore, further research could be conducted to reassess the theory.
