It’s Good for Your Brain

Aside from connecting you to more people around the world, learning a new language has tangible benefits on the brain.  Being bilingual strengthens the executive area of your brain in the following ways:

  • Improves selective attention, which helps you focus while filtering irrelevant information
  • Improves problem solving skills, aiding in performing mentally complex and demanding tasks
  • Staves off early onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease
