The Benefits of Learning a Second Language

Diversity in Adult Education - Banner

Bilingualism means being able to speak another language besides your native language. There are different types of bilingualism, which can be separated into two main categories: Natural bilingualism (or bilinguals from birth) or Acquired bilingualism (or bilingualism acquired at a later stage in life).

Speaking more than one language is pretty great already, but the benefits of being bilingual don’t just end there. Being bilingual involves a broad range of benefits not everyone is aware of, it helps a person develop their cognitive skills further improving their maths and literacy skills at the same time and it can even help with the prevention or delay of Alzheimer’s disease. It has been proven that from the early age of 7 months, children who are bilingual can adapt easier and faster to environmental changes and, strangely enough, bilingual people are able to sort out puzzles more easily than their monolingual counterparts.

But the benefits don’t end there, some other key benefits of bilingualism include:

  • The ability to focus and concentrate on a single task
  • Better at multi-tasking
  • Improved memory
  • Better decision-making skills
  • Better problem-solving skills
  • And of course, people tend to think you are pretty cool!

Children who learn a second language from birth also develop higher thinking skills than their monolingual peers and they generally perform better at maths and sciences. They have a stronger sense of identity, they can easily learn other languages and accept new cultures more naturally.

Advantages of Bilingualism in the Workplace

Bilingualism in the workplace pays off as well. More companies are looking for people who speak more than one language, and this is reflected in their paycheque.

So, besides having a highly developed brain that is able to multitask, take smarter decisions and focus better at work, recent research shows that bilinguals are more likely to travel and work around the world and get paid accordingly!

So being bilingual sounds pretty good already, why not give it a go?

Time to Become Bilingual!

The best time to start learning a new language is childhood, while our brains are still developing and our phonological system is able to produce new sounds and adjust accordingly. However, it is never too late, so if you weren’t raised bilingual, the best time to learn a language is NOW!
