We already knew this but it does not hurt to be reminded. Excerpt:
In an interview with the New York Times, Bialystok shared that she’s found that people who are bilingual are “using a different kind of network… Their whole brain appears to rewire because of bilingualism.” And, that rewiring gives bilinguals an advantage. They’re better at multitasking because their brains are used to having to concentrate while switching back and forth between two languages. Bilinguals kids are also better at determining if a sentence is grammatically correct and they perform better on written tests.
