Bilingualism can help close learning gaps for immigrant students
from National Journal
The gospel of the day is that raising children to speak and understand more than one language is good for their cognitive development. A number of studies released in the past few years have indicated that multilingual speakers may even have more focused brains and higher processing abilities. Not surprisingly, this research — and the media attention that has accompanied it — has led to renewed efforts among more-affluent parents to secure spots for their children in language immersion schools and employ multilingual nannies who can expose their wee ones to another language from the earliest ages.
