Learning a new language is something that you should encourage your child to do while they are still young. There are so many benefits to being bilingual or multilingual. Here are some of the great reasons why knowing another language is so beneficial:

1. A study from the International Journal of Biligualism found that kids who knew more than one language had better problem solving skills than those of their peers who only knew one language.

2. As you age your mind stays sharp. A study from the Annals of Neurology showed that people who knew more than one language did better on cognitive tests later in life as opposed to their peers.

3. The Journal of Neuroscience conducted a study that showed that people who knew more than one language had an easier time adapting to sudden changes. They were able to think quickly, assess the situation, and come up with a solution.
