MULTILINGUISM: Is there Room for two or More Languages in One Brain? Yes, of course. You or your child will increase cognitive flexibility, positive effects on literacy and academic performance, increase awareness of language and the facility or learning it. Your child will be able to broaden social, economic and cultural horizons; and more with having two worlds instead of one ( friends, cultural aspects, job possibilities).
