How the Brain Benefits from Being Bilingual – Infographic

The brain benefits immensely from speaking two or more languages from improved cognitive skills, to developing denser grey matter, to improved decision making skills, and even delaying the onset of dementia. Bilingualism improves children’s test scores and critical thinking abilities, as well as concentration and multi-tasking abilities. Speaking two languages also means a better salary in the workforce across a wide array of professions. View the below infographic for more information on the subject.

    This is really interesting! I would like to also know about the benefits of being tri-lingual or for that effect knowing four or more languages. Do the benefits level off after having a knowledge of two languages, or do they increase with the number of languages known?

    I was raised as a bilingual child myself ( spanish and italian. I am so grateful to my parents because of that. I was able to understand not only two languages, but
    two cultures as well.
    Thank you so much!!!!!
