Bilingual Benefits

I knew that we were doing our kids a favour by bringing them up bilingual in Switzerland, even if their english sounds a bit swiss and their word order is positively germanic! This guardian article explains why being bilingual is good for your brain and your mental health! It's really interesting - also explains why the culture of the country can have an impact on what you actually say in that language ie by impacting on the grammar and syntax of the language. There are several German / English examples!
