The 21st century is diverse and multi-cultural. How exactly can we help the kids achieve excellence in spite of the unpredictability of today’s world? As it turns out, the answer lies in bilingualism. Not only does bilingualism provide your children with an edge over their monolingual peers, it helps brain and cognitive development as well.

Nurturing your kids into effective bilingual learners can be great for their cognitive development. According to a 2014 research conducted by the National University of Singapore, there is a strong link between bilingualism and higher IQ. Additional studies have also shown that children who are exposed to bilingualism display greater development in parts of the brain that are associated with attention, language and memory.
