Our memory plays an important role in every aspect of our lives. Research has shown that when you train your memory effectively, you will see long-lasting improvements in your mental fitness and abilities. One potential way in which to train your memory is through learning a foreign language. Speaking two or more languages from a very young age has been shown to improve brain functioning, memory and attention.
In this series of podcasts, developmental psychologists Dr Meesha Warmington and guests explore the cognitive benefits of learning a foreign language.
