There’s More To Multilingual People Than What Meets The Eye (Or Ear)
There’s possibly no argument about it: Persons who know and use one or more foreign languages are a cut above the monolinguals.
Multilinguals appear smart, sharp, well bred and cultured. When they speak, they command respect. When they express their opinions, others can’t help but pay attention.
As if these attributes are not impressive enough, they also possess other qualities more remarkable than these ones.
More Notable Traits Of A Multilingual
For this, we refer to an article written by Anne Merritt, which was featured in The Telegraph wherein she writes, “Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of multilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”
Let us cite some of them:
- Multilinguals are almost always multitaskers.
The “juggling” skill that multilingual people possess makes them good multitaskers because they can easily switch between different structures.
- They are better decision makers
According to a study from the University of Chicago, multilinguals tend to make more rational decisions. They are also more confident with their choices after thinking it over in the second language.
- They are more perceptive
A study from the University of Pompeu Fabra in Spain suggested that multilingual people are better at observing surroundings. They are also better at spotting misleading information.
- They have sharper memories
Brain, as in muscle, functions better with exercise. Learning a new language involves memorizing rules and vocabulary, which helps strengthen that mental “muscle.” Such an exercise improves overall memory.
