Babies in bilingual homes have cognitive advantages
Today’s Video of the Day from York University reveals that exposure to more than one language is associated with cognitive advantages that can be observed in children as young as six months old.
In a study involving images on a screen, babies who were from bilingual homes demonstrated better control over attention and learning.
According to the experts, bilingual environments should be considered a significant factor in the early development of attention and may even set the stage for lifelong cognitive benefits.
The study is published in the journal Developmental Science.
