"SENIORS LEARN ENGLISH IN USA-SILVER PROGRAM"
San Diego, California, USA.
"We found that seniors who are bilingual are able to activate their brain with a magnitude closer to young subjects. So they don't need to expend as much effort, and yet they still out-perform their monolingual peers, suggesting they use their brain more efficiently."
-Dr. Brian Gold , Neuroscientist at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. source: learningenglish.voanews.com
