this is your bilingual brain, illustrated

TED-ED recently published a short, but powerful new video explaining the significant brain benefits that accompany bilingualism. Research shows that in addition to the financial and cultural benefits that accompany bilingualism, learning another language actually makes your brain more healthy, complex and actively engaged. So much so that multilingualism has been shown to help delay the onset of certain brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and dementia. So without further ado, here’s a look at the bilingual brain, illustrated.

Let us know what you think of the video in the comment section.
