You can learn a second language and fight off Alzheimers´s. I was recently quite impressed with the article from the Daily Express on Saturday the 19th of February of 2011 about the possibility to learn a second language and fight off Alzheimers´s.
It has been claimed by experts that speaking two language-s wards off Alzheimer´s and at the same time keeps the brain young.
What do you think about this? People that speak several language-s push their brain to the peak which make it stronger.
I will not go into detail as you can read the article yourself however point out the following quotation
“It won´t stop you getting Alzheimers, but bilinguals can cope with the disease for longer. Switching between one language and another language is stimulating activity”.
Is bilingualism good for you?
