I think that every citizen should learn more than one language to be able to contribute an intellectual edge to society. By people speaking more than one language, we would be able to communicate better with peers. European countries require their youth to learn different languages. Despite English dominating, our education system should offer language courses to be globally infused. -Scout

Many children are forced to learn a different language from what they grew up with. With this setback, many of their feeling cannot be seen, in a negative way. But as  they accomadate to their languages, they can begin to comprimise and solve problems, live happily ever after.

I have met people that aren't from America that speak Spanish, and when they get mad or excited then they speak in their native language. I didn't know that some people didn't do that. It's weird that some people switch languages while they are mad or excited. My mind doesn't even work that fast on my first language. It's amazing how the human mind works.

In some cases when people are able to speak more than one language and they are in pain, in trouble, are sad, or are angry they some times use other languages then the one they grew up learning. Sometimes it is easier expressing yourself using a foreign language. Using a foreign language sometimes  helps expressing yourself easier .~Amanda

Neuroscience and the Bilingual Brain

Neuroscience and the Bilingual Brain | Bilingualism |
Blogger Judy Willis shares neuroscientific research suggesting that children growing up bilingual develop better focus and judgment.


Better Memory and Attention

The implications of the bilingual research also relate to the influence of the higher brain's executive functions on working (short-term) memory strength down in the hippocampus. The hippocampus is the relay station where new information is first encoded into memory before moving up to the prefrontal cortex for further processing into long-term memory.


In the mature brain, the amount of information that can be "held" in mind for active processing in working memory is limited to somewhere between five and nine chunks of data.

The Kingdom Keepers's curator insight, March 19, 2014 10:20 AM

English is the most widespread and used language all over the world. In this century English is the most common language and second language in many countries. It is suggested in many places for English to be used as a second language, because it is used primarily in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. English is also the most used language on the internet, requiring many people to learn it in order to use the internet.
