Language learning boosts brain plasticity and ability to code new information


Check some new brain research on language learning here at http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/312708.php

Excerpt:

“These results demonstrate a significant role of earlier language experience in neural plasticity in general and in the rapid formation of memory circuits for novel words in particular. Critically, previous language learning not only influences how strongly the brain responds to novel non-native speech input but tentatively also to new words with native phonology.”
