Viva bilingualism!!!

“OTTAWA (Reuters) – People who are fully bilingual and speak both languages every day for most of their lives can delay the onset of dementia by up to four years compared with those who only know one language, Canadian scientists said on Friday.”

“In the process of using … two languages, you are engaging parts of your brain, parts of your mind that are active and need that kind of constant exercise and activity, and with that experience (it) stays more robust,” (source)

Are there more incentives to learn new languages? 😀
