Benefits of a Bilingual Brain

As English learners, you’re on your way to being bilingual, or even multilingual! Of course, with each additional language, you’ll have more ways to communicate. But have you thought how else being bilingual benefits you? For the curious, watch the TED-Ed video below, in which “Mia Nacamulli details the three types of bilingual brains and shows how knowing more than one language keeps your brain healthy, complex and actively engaged.” Click on CC to watch with subtitles (it’ll be helpful for the more scientific parts). Recommended for intermediate to advanced learners (Levels 400+).
