“One of their conclusions refers to enhanced cognitive skills like analysis, interpretation, comparison and contrast, improvisation, and synthesis. Indeed, acquiring grammatical structures means first observing the way the linguistic system works, comparing it to the others you already master, drawing a set of rules and building sentences based on them.”

This is an intuitive aspect of language learning that isn’t always discussed. Children growing up knowing a language other than their own will not just help them obtain stable careers in their later adulthood, but it can be an asset to every aspect of their lives. Great article and points made!

Thanks! In my opinion there is more to it. Childhood is the best period for learning languages. The efforts one makes later in life are incomparably more significant.
