Language: the Builder of Bridges

According to Dr. Brenda Milner, a McGill neurology and neurosurgery professor and researcher, children should learn three languages before the age of seven, as they won’t be self conscious and afraid to make mistakes. Milner believes that learning language is a motor skill; you must practice it to get better, such as practicing a sport. The reward of being bilingual says Milner is “the broadening of your culture, the broadening of the knowledge of yourself.” She concludes that learning other languages, “is good for our brain…good for our happiness, and…good for society.”
