Bilingual students tend to score higher on
standardized tests than monolingual students, especially in the areas of
vocabulary, reading and math. As you learn to switch from one language to
another, you improve your multitasking abilities. Bilingual individuals have
also been shown to be more logical and rational, be more perceptive and aware
of their surroundings.
