 +Your peers have left a lot of great comments. A few more:
 +
 +  * I recommend creating some more internal links, or splitting some sections off onto their own pages. The page is getting a little long.
 +  * You have four main topics in your introduction,​ and three research questions, with some overlap. Maybe you could condense this into one overarching organization,​ and use it to link to parts of the page? 
 +  * Each section is organized slightly differently (some numerical, some bulleted, some prose). Consider a more uniform presentation (I'm not sure a numerical description is the best approach).
 +  * I think the main content to add is a summary of the findings---you discuss them in each section, but a brief spoiler at the beginning would help the reader decide where to navigate.
 +  * Are there any figures from the studies you cite that you could include? How about web videos illustrating code switching?

 Things seem to be coalescing around the idea of a critical period. I think your questions about whether critical periods are different for bilinguals is interesting---the general notion is that a critical period is a fixed period during which development takes place (I'm not aware of research showing that it can be affected by the environment,​ but you may find some). What you may want to focus on is the age and context of exposure to multiple languages---when a child is exposed to more than one language (e.g., both from birth, first one then the other, etc.) Look for things related to "early bilingualism"​ vs. "late bilingualism"​. (you have added some information on this, but you should update the research questions accordingly) Things seem to be coalescing around the idea of a critical period.
