NIH study: Bilingualism boosts the brain
About 22 percent of school-age children speak a language other than English at home, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The percentage is even higher, 64 percent, among Hispanic children. Still, it is commonly believed by some that teaching more than one language to children confuses them. Now, new research shows that in fact, bilingualism actually boosts the brain. Shifting back and forth between two different sets of vocabulary and grammar provide a real mental workout.
