How bilingualism could benefit the brain
A second language can be a big advantage in many ways — whether you're looking for a new job or want to blend in with the locals on a foreign holiday. But could it also sharpen your brain and help keep it young? A fascinating study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found a connection between faster mental reactions and speaking two or more languages. They found that people who were raised bilingual may have brains that work more efficiently. As they age, their linguistic abilities could help delay a decline in brain power.
