Being bilingual does not make you smarter: study

Apr 27, 2020 17:41 IST

Although being bilingual has many benefits, a new research from the University of Western Ontario has found that it doesn't necessarily make you smarter. The study asked 11,041 participants how many languages they spoke and then had them take 12 cognitive tests. The researchers concluded that there were no consistent differences between monolingual and bilingual people. The scientists published their findings in the journal Psychological Science.
