Want to be smart? Learn a Foreign Language.
In an interconnected world, being multilingual helps you forge valuable global connections and increase your chances of making it big in the world of business. But being multilingual is good for your brain too.
Not only can bilingualism improve brain functioning, like thinking, analyzing, making connections, and synthesizing information, but also keep age-related neural disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia at bay.
