The benefits of learning a Second Language.
Most researches about the benefits of young children learning a second language agree that it is a positive stimulus for the part of the brain that deals with abstract thinking. Learning a second language can help problem solving thinking such as used in math and creative thinking. It is also a fact that people who already know how to speak a second or third language have greater ability to learn a new language.
