Many enthusiastic language learners have wondered if it is good to learn two languages at the same time, if it is possible, and if it is effective.

In this article, we will answer that question in a straightforward way: yes, it is very good for many reasons to learn two languages at the same time. But we’d better explain it in detail…

Approximately 40% of the world’s population speaks only one language, while 43% is bilingual and 13% is trilingual.

And this last category is the one we are going to approach more closely in this text. A trilingual person has considerable advantages over his or her peers: more job opportunities, better academic performance, a broader and more accurate view of the world, greater cognitive development and even less chance of suffering from neurodegenerative diseases.

Trilingualism is generally the goal of those who try to learn two languages at the same time, and since we know the advantages, we should ask ourselves why not learn one language first and another one later.

To this question, the answer is simple: Why not both languages at the same time? There is no scientific evidence that says that people could get confused between two languages they learn at the same time. Neither in children nor in adults.

In our experience at Lingua Language Center, students who decide to learn two languages at the same time, end up succeeding with both if they have the time and the will.

It is common for students at our school to be motivated by the environment we offer and to request simultaneous enrollment in another language class. To do so, you just have to organize yourselves so that the times do not coincide and be willing to do so.

But is it possible to learn two languages at the same time?

A study by the University of British Columbia showed that the human brain alternates perfectly between different languages, and even its learning process, especially when it is motivated and has the right tools to achieve it.

This is due to the neuroplasticity of the brain, and something really surprising is that the more we are subjected to new and different languages at the same time, this virtue of adaptability increases.

At Lingua Language Center, we make sure that students only have to worry about learning, as we cover all aspects of curriculum and organization.

And what are the benefits of learning two languages at the same time?

Among the benefits of learning two languages at the same time is a significant development of synaptic connections in the brain, which, in other words, could be said to increase intelligence, regardless of the student’s age.

On the other hand, keeping the brain so active, and switching from one language to another so fluently, helps in making the right decisions and significantly enhances creativity.

But there is more: it has been shown that those who learn two languages at the same time, become aware of the way languages work, and become better at their mother tongue, that is, they start to write better, both grammatically and orthographically.
