If You're Bilingual, You're More Intelligent Than People Who Only Speak One Language

We all know the direct benefits of knowing more than one language: better job prospects, being able to speak with locals when traveling, watching Narcos on Netflix and not needing subtitles.

But what does it actually do to your brain because, as it turns out, your brain may look and work differently, as the TED video below explains. As many Latino millennials grow up further disconnected from their parent's or grandparent's native language, most are losing their chance to be bilingual, but I'm here to tell you DON'T!

The "heightened workout" that a bilingual brain receives throughout it's life can be beneficial because it can offset many neurological diseases like Alzheimers and dementia by as much as five years.
