Being Bilingual May Boost Your Brain Power

This NPR article is from back in April, but if you haven’t read it, it’s very interesting (though not surprising). I especially liked the quote, “Growing up bilingual is just as natural as growing up monolingual.”

Here’s another article on bilingualism from NPR:

Bilingual Babies More Perceptive to Nonnative Tongues

Just more proof that our efforts to raise bilingual children is definitely WORTH IT!

    Nice article… we just had a guest spot over on my blog talking about experiences of another Japanese-Aussie family (http://raisingadelaide.blogspot.com/2011/07/reesan-guest-writes-on-battle-of.html). Perhaps you should add a link back to this post (and leave your own experiences as well).

      This is a GREAT article! Thanks for sharing. There seems to be a lot of Japanese-mix families in Australia– true?

    That’s great news, I always knew it would be a plus for kids to learn more than one language. I retweeted your post!
