Those who are truly multilingual, able interact comfortably in more than one language and culture have a big edge up in today's global economy. Language learning is fun only when it offers concrete socio-emotional benefits to the learner because humans are fundamentally social creatures. Gameplay scenarios mimic common interactions children have in order for them to comfortably carry out such conversations using a foreign language in real life.Chinese Language Immersion
Multilingualism result in more flexibility, better executive functioning, rational decision making, creative problem-solving skills (Boaz Keysar) just to name a few. In fact, the benefits of true bilingualism are so profound that it changes the brain—increasing gray matter volume in the left inferior parietal cortex. Bilinguals have more gray matter in the executive control region of the brain. Studies also reveal that multilingual people can develop a learned skill faster than their monolingual peers. The demand of using more than one language increases the need for better cognitive control and flexibility, which results in an increase in the gray matter volume observable in the frontal and parietal regions of the brain. When bilingual children communicate, the languages in their brains compete with one another to be chosen.
To speak in one language, a multilingual child must choose one language and suppress the other. This calls for attention and the ability of the brain to be flexible. Multilinguals give their brains a much-needed workout that further strengthens their cognitive muscles.
Researchers have documented the positive impact of multilingualism on memory from infants to the elderly. Using another language requires learning new vocabulary sets, grammar rules and the ability to recall them at will, which explain why learning another language lead to faster learning of additional languages and deeper understanding of one’s native language.
