Mia Nacamulli details the three types of bilingual brains and shows how knowing more than one language keeps your brain healthy, complex and actively engaged.

Beyond the typical advantages of creating additional synaptic connections with the learning of an increased volume of words and ways to express ourselves, there is fascinating research that shows that bilingual speakers have more resilient brains. This goes byond expanded language. As young as 8 months of age, bi-lingual and tri-lingual learners show an improved ability with regards to conflict resolution.
