Chalk Talk: Benefits of Learning a Second Language
Learning a second language provides children, and adults, with a host of benefits that go well beyond an improved ability to communicate with people from other areas. Studies have shown that people that who learn additional languages have improved brain health, including growth and development of neural connections. Adding a second, or even a third, language to one’s repertoire also improves understanding of one’s first language, with increased understanding of grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. Also, when a person begins thinking about college and career goals, the important skills of speaking a second language may come in very handy. Lastly, language acquisition gives people insight into the cultures and traditions of people dissimilar from themselves. This increases appreciation and respect for the way that people live their lives in other parts of the world.
