A report published by the renowned Instituto Cervantes research center says there are now an estimated 52.6 million people in the US who can speak the worldwide romance language, which is second only to Mexico's 121 million.

And even if your 中国体彩官网软件下载 does not have a full immersion program, you can make a difference for your students by doing some immersion work in your class. For example, when students come to the Middlebury-Monterey Language Academies—held at sites across the United States and the world—many are barely able to introduce themselves in French, Spanish, or Chinese—much like any student new to a foreign language.

Plus, a new study finds that even adult brains can re-wire themselves to mimic the brain patterns of native speakers – and this effect is amplified if they study by immersing themselves in a foreign language, rather than sitting in a classroom. And when they were not exposed to the new language for five months, their native-speaker brain patterns actually got stronger.  Read more....

For example, it has been shown that aging adults who speak more than one language have less likelihood of developing dementia. Additionally, the bilingual brain becomes better at filtering out distractions, and learning multiple languages improves creativity. Evidence also shows that learning subsequent languages is easier than learning the first foreign language. Read more....

One thing we've learned at NPR Ed is that people are fascinated by brain research. And yet it can be hard to point to places where our education system is really making use of the latest neuroscience findings. But there is one happy nexus where research is meeting practice: bilingual education. "In the last 20 years or so, there's been a virtual explosion of research on bilingualism," says Judith Kroll, a professor at the University of California, Riverside. Read more....

The mental sharpness needed to switch between two languages may develop skills that boost other types of thinking, explained researchers from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.

Learning more than one language enables new conversations and new experiences. But in recent years, psychology researchers have demonstrated some less obvious advantages of bilingualism, too. For instance, bilingual children may enjoy certain cognitive benefits, such as improved executive function — which is critical for problem solving and other mentally demanding activities. Now, two new studies demonstrate that multilingual exposure improves not only children's cognitive skills but also their social abilities. Read more....

Some of you may already know of the tragic situation currently going on in Venezuela. Since 2014 the Venezuelan people have had to endure long lines and shortages of basic necessities and essential goods to survive. The situation is reaching a humanitarian level and is directly affecting one of our own. Mrs. Iliana has been contacted by her family currently living in Venezuela in urgent need of basic daily items. Items as simple as tooth paste, Tylenol, feminine products, and non-perishables. If anyone would like to contribute to the care packages that we will be sending to Venezuela, there will be donation boxes in the front office this week until Friday July 15th. Below is a list of some of the things that they have requested, but any items you can spare will be appreciated. As a 中国体彩官网软件下载 we will use this tragedy to teach the students about giving and helping other people around the world. We thank you in advance for your generosity and being a part of the DIS family!
