Last year, Giuli Dussias and Judith Kroll were asked to contribute a white paper on the benefits of multilingualism for the Commission on Language Learning at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. They shared their report when it appeared last spring, but the full report of the commission is now available and will be of interest to many of you: America’s Languages: Investing in Language Education for the 21st Century.

Penn State Psychology Professor Dr. Ping Li publishes article discussing how bilingual brains change in response to learning a second language
This article, by Penn State Psychology Professor Dr. Ping Li, discusses how bilingual brains change in response to learning a second language. Among the interesting findings are language-specific effects of bilingualism, how second language learning leads to a more integrated brain, and why language learning may delay cognitive aging.
