Reason to Attend Spanish Camp #5

Bilingualism Linked to Brain Health
Did you know that "students who have studied a foreign language perform much better than their monolingual peers on many standardized tests, including all sections of the SAT"?  Read more here.

Studies have also shown that bilingualism can improve "cognitive reserve" abilities in the brain, which is "believed to slow the onset of symptoms in those suffering from dementia."  Read more here.

Also, bilingual people are better at multi-tasking.  Compared to monolinguals, they are "stronger at prioritizing tasks and handling multiple projects at once."  Read more here.

But besides all that, learning a new language is fun!  Here is a sneak peak at some fun books we will be reading at Spanish Summer Camp!
