BONUS Fun Fact

Fun fact (bonus!): Studies have found that people that can speak more than one language, pull up all the words they know (in all languages they know) during use. This can be a bit overwhelming at times; however, it may also help in one’s ability to think about a situation more rationally.

“Research has overwhelmingly shown that when a bilingual person uses one language, the other is active at the same time.” (Marian & Shook, 2012).
