Dr. Andrew Weil has observed that “the best mental workouts I can think of are learning a new computer operating system and learning a new language.” (Dr. Andrew Weil on his website, http://www.drweil.com).

A new study bears out his thesis.

The researchers of the separate study concluded that “Bilingualism may help delay dementia symptoms.” 

The study was published in the February 2007 issue of Neuropsychologia (Vol. 45, No. 2).

Dr. Weil offers that “you don’t have to master the language”to get the benefits. “It’s like using different software through the system. It’s extremely beneficial.”
