Benefits of raising bilingual children

According to a recent article on the BBC News, bilingual children may be less easily confused and less likely to develop Alzheimer's when they grow up. According to the work of Agnes Kovacs and Jacques Mehler, infants brought up by parents who spoke different languages did better in a puppet game by adjusting more quickly to changes. They were also quicker in anticipating on which side of the screen the puppet in the game would appear on, based on speech clues.
