Why exposing your children to another language is one of the best things you can do: more capable of empathy

Why exposing your children to another language is one of the best things you can do: more capable of empathy | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Being raised in a multilingual world could mean that the skills used to better focus the brain on more than one task at a time could be how the skill to express empathy is developed, two skills tied into one: focusing effectively on more than one perspective.
