In our globalized world is well known that the more languages you master the greater your chances of finding a good job. Another advantage has been discovered by British scientist Jared Diamond, a specialist in multilingualism at the University of California. He has shown in a study that children who speak at least two languages have a lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease or dementia, to reach an advanced age.

Diamond's first discovery, made during his experiments with bilingual children, was the ability of the latter to have a higher concentration in confusing situations. Later, from studies of Canadian colleagues showed that, on average, bilinguals acquire symptoms of the disease four years later than individuals "normal" Diamond explained that the brains of bilingual individuals often work otherwise done possibly delay the development of degenerative diseases.

The investigator advised not to repeat the mistakes of many immigrants in the United States, including many members of his own family, who have chosen not to spend their native languages to their children so that they become "real Americans."

"If your parents are immigrants insists that teach you their language, and if your parents are immigrants, then you only strive to learn another language," the expert advised.
