What advantages will I receive from improving my English?
Different scientific studies have shown how advantageous it is for the adult brain to learn a foreign language: it thickens a layer of neurons that are responsible for thought, language, memory, and consciousness. The following are several advantages that are associated with learning and improving your English:
- Better cognitive flexibility: this means bilingual people can adapt themselves to a new or unexpected situation faster than monolinguals this is because learning a new language develops new areas of their mind and enhances their ability to focus and process information.
- Improves memory and makes you a more conscious thinker: once you have come across new words or structures, you have to remember and apply them, an exercise that strengthens your memory and increases creativity.
- Listening skills make the mind work at its peak: in order to hear, understand, interpret, and produce sounds typical of a new language, learners have to spot ambiguous information and distinguish relevancy from irrelevant data.
- Increases attention and decision-making abilities: Any new language has expressions and idioms with different shades of meaning, which makes the learner be very careful as to what is appropriate for a certain situation and what would be offensive for the native speaker.
- Multi-tasking skills: bilingual individuals develop skills to switch between two systems of speech, writing, and structure – those of their own language and those of the target language. Switching between different structures provides good multitasking attributes.
