More than half of the world's children speak completely bilingually. The children of this country should be equal to the children of other countries, which, in addition to the development of the features of the bilingual child's brain, will affect the cases he will face in adulthood, such as studying, traveling to other countries, or looking for a job etc. Learning English depends on all these things. Perhaps bilingual education from childhood will help the development of brain function. The brain characteristics of bilingual children have special cognitive advantages compared to monolingual children, which we will examine in this article.


The features of the bilingual child's brain are:

Bilingual people have better skills such as memory or attention

Memory is used in mental calculations or understanding a subject, which is related to the temporary storage of information and its processing. This ability is developed in childhood, and according to researchers, bilingual children between five and seven years of age perform better than monolinguals, and their memory is better. In addition, bilingualism in them is beneficial for the ability to develop brain activities, especially when these activities interact with each other.


Being bilingual delays dementia

Dementia is delayed along with better attention and memory and speaking two languages. It can also be said that lifelong bilingualism protects people from memory and brain deterioration by improving cognitive memory and delays the onset of this disease. As a result, the researchers emphasize that the mastery of several languages does not prevent dementia, but apparently bilingual people get this disease later, but it happens earlier in monolingual people.


Increasing the recovery process of stroke in bilingual people

Bilingualism also seems to be beneficial for someone who has had a stroke. People who speak multiple languages are better able to recover their cognitive function after this complication compared to people who speak only one language. The researchers conducted this experiment on people who had suffered a stroke. Bilingual people had a higher percentage of improvement than monolingual people. Also, their recovery process was very remarkable. Based on these results that mastering two languages improves brain recovery after stroke, it can be said that bilingualism is related to people's cognitive memory.


Preservation of brain youth in bilingual people

Other studies have shown that gray matter in the lower left part of the brain is denser in people who speak two languages. In addition, bilingualism promotes better preservation of white matter during aging. In general, bilinguals use different parts of the brain to perform tasks compared to monolinguals. What remains a mystery is how these changes in the brain improve cognitive performance and memory in bilinguals.

Bilingualism prevents distraction

The bilingual mind is activated automatically and unconsciously in the bilingual child's brain. One constantly manages language interference so as not to say the wrong word at the wrong time in the wrong language. Different parts of the brain are used to do different things. Sometimes these mental activities may be done with distraction. This may not have anything to do with language, but a focused mind can enhance trying to listen to something in a noisy environment or doing a visual task. Therefore, the use of two languages in speaking strengthens memory, which can ultimately increase various skills in a person.


Can teaching two languages to children delay forgetting in them?

Parents worry that their child may merge languages. Don't worry about anything because the English language team at the Happy Ent site has been able to provide educational packages with bilingual cartoons by examining psychological issues and the needs of the audience. It is designed for different ages. So that learning is a part of the child's entertainment. This greatly increases the percentage of learning and minimizes the percentage of being forgotten.

Just as no child has forgotten the cartoons and stories of his childhood, and children can learn bilingualism very well. Of course, we note that combining languages is a sign of the skill or competence of bilingual people.

The advice of the Happy Ant language department group is to be persistent and patient. Of course, bilingual children have a harder time than children who learn only one language. They are learning two sets of vocabulary and speech sounds. Creating a practical goal for learning a second language in our country, where Persian is the dominant language, can be challenging. The child must feel that language is useful and use it.

All the items in Happy Ant's packages inspire the child to use the concept, which leads to the child becoming more targeted and interested in the English language.
