Can that be true? Does learning a second language really have such a good effect on our brains? I’m absolutely sure that learning any language sharpens our mind, offers a wider range of possibilities in the job market and broadenes our horizons. But after reading this article, I wonder if learning three languages had any effect on me, I’m so absent-minded half the time!!!!
Probably one of the downsides of learning a language is the amount of time one has to invest in it. It happens to be a really arduous task that will take up a lot of our time. But contrary to what one frequently comes across nowadays, there is no such thing as learning a language ‘like a native’ in a couple of minutes a day as it is also true that you can’t expect to get really fit by just cutting down on some fatty foods and not doing much more.
Both areas, learning a language and showing off some super sexy abs, seem to be extremely lucrative businesses nowadays, but I honestly don’t think that something you can get in the blink of an eye, is really worth it, and certainly not within being healthy in mind and body.
