Being bilingual improves overall brain function

A lot of research has been done on the effects of
learning and speaking languages.

 

People who speak two or more languages have significantly better overall cognitive abilities than those who speak one. Compared to people that speak one language, adults who speak multiple languages are more likely to:

  • have higher general intelligence
  • be better at planning, prioritizing, and decision making
  • score higher on standardized math, reading, and vocabulary tests
  • be more perceptive of their surroundings
  • avoid falling for marketing hype
  • understand others’ points of view
  • have better focus, concentration, and attention
  • delay immediate gratification in the pursuit of long-term goals
  • have better memory and memorization skills, including better working memory
  • exhibit mental flexibility
  • switch between tasks quickly
  • be creative
  • have good listening skills
