Being Bilingual

A Nimble Brain

The work of Canadian psycholinguist, Ellen Bialystok, points to the agile brains of bilinguals. Bilinguals are efficient in their cognitive function and better at discerning the essential from the non-essential. 
The work of Canadian psycholinguist, Ellen Bialystok, points to the agile brains of bilinguals. Bilinguals are efficient in their cognitive function and better at discerning the essential from the non-essential. They are better able to manage multiple tasks, solving problems across verbal and nonverbal domains as they capitalize on what they know in one area to address another. A bilingual brain is an active one, and also a healthier one, especially as we age. Her research shows that bilingualism is a strong tool in the fight against dimension and even alzheimer's in older patients.
