Researchers at Northwestern University claim that being bilingual is a form of ‘brain training’ which helps “fine tune” our minds.
According to recent studies carried out with modern techniques which monitored brainwaves in monolingual and bilingual participants, those speaking two languages responded differently to sounds and had different nervous system reactions than their monolingual counterparts.

Thanks to modern neuroscience we are able to know more and more about how our brains react to language learning and how language shapes the brain.
