Being Truly Bilingual can lead to better functioning as an Elder Person!

Check out the article below about the amazing benefits of being bilingual.  As the article mentions, this doesn't include the few years we all took Spanish in high school, but people who use at least 2 languages on a regular basis seem to tap into parts of the brains others are not able to.  Even those with a pre-disposition for Alzheimers seem to be able to push back the effects of the disease longer than those monolingual patients, and that is super exciting.  Pretty encouraging stuff, time to get that Rosetta Stone YO!
