Top 5 reasons for being bilingual

By Kevin Saidler

Top 5 reasons for being bilingual

Raising your children bilingual in a global world is a valuable asset—that’s obvious. The list of positives is endless! But I wanted to use my blog to challenge myself to compile a “Top 5” of my favorite reasons! 

  1. Having the ability to speak more than one language exercises the brain
  2. In my opinion, bilingual kids may have higher memory retention
  3. Bilingual children are often better at problem-solving I feel, as languages work as puzzles
  4. Being exposed to multiple cultures through language can enhance cultural tolerance
  5. Bilingual kids are perhaps more creative, as opening their minds to multiple languages, and cultures expand their creative thinking abilities
