There are so many benefits to being bilingual. Regarding health, scientists say that people who speak more than one language can delay symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s. When considering what language to choose, I think whatever you have an interest in is best because it will motivate you to keep going forward, but certainly easiest is the language you would be able to functionally practice more. When I have kids I think speaking the other language around the house and finding opportunities for them to practice it would be the best way of promoting use. Overall, speaking another language opens up a realm of possibilities.
