The benefit of learning a second language

One study which was published in the Annals of Neurology in 2014 showed that it can show aging of the brain and even delay the beginnings of dementia.

The research was gathered from 2008 to 2010 and all participants were able to speak in at least one other language besides English.

The majority of participants learned the second language prior to turning  age 18 while the other learned after becoming an adult.

The study is significant because it showed the benefits were similar for both groups, which means people who learn a new language later in life will still see improvements in brain activity.

A second study showed that people who can speak two or more languages often have improved ability to focus.
