- Bilingualism enables learners to focus more on relevant information and ignore unnecessary distractions.
- Bilingual students can solve word problems and understand math concepts more easily.
- Bilinguals have heightened ability to keep track of changes in their surroundings.
- Bilingualism helps kids to focus more and understand better other people’s point or view or belief, rather than just focus on their own perspective.
- Bilingualism allows learners to master other languages more easily throughout their lifetime.
- According to Tamar Gollan, neuropsychologist of the University of California, San Diego, bilinguals are more resistant than others to the onset of dementia and other symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
