Benefits of a Bilingual Brain
Are you aware of the benefits of a bilingual brain?
Dual language education programs provide powerful opportunities to strengthen children’s cognitive potential. Literacy development in two languages and exposure to cultural experiences impact key areas.
Research shows that bilingual people have improved their:
- mental health,
- academic performance, and
- preparation for the future.
It also shows that people who speak multiple languages are more developed in certain areas of the brain.
