Multi Facet Benefits of being Bilingual

By Osa Subscribe to RSS | December 29th 2011 | Views:

In any form of communication, whether it’s inter-personal or group communication, language plays a vital role. It’s through speech that we can express our thoughts and ideas to others. This speech basically is of two kinds- verbal and non-verbal. In non-verbal form of communication body movements are used to communicate something with someone. In verbal form of communication, we make use of our mother tongue or other speech forms for the purpose of communication. In this globalised world, it’s very important to have knowledge of different languages.

When a person knows multiple languages, his chances of beings adjusted in a new environment gets higher. Language skills development depends on many factors. One of the factors is the environment in which the child is growing. If a child grows in a colony where people speak a diversity of speech forms, than the child automatically develops skills in different languages other than the mother tongue.

A child can become bilingual if the parents speak different terminologies, say for example, the mother speaks English and the father speaks German. In such cases, the child acquires the characteristics of both the speech forms.

There are thousands of languages that people speak around the world. In fact in India also, hundreds of terminological forms are used by the people. Every people know at least one language that they learn in their childhood. But some people develop the interesting of knowing more than one speech form. The globalization of the world has now opened up doors to learn more languages. The demand of knowing the foreign terminology is increasing day by day. Modern day schools are also emphasizing on the language studies of the students and thus added foreign languages in their school curriculum. Bilingualism offers multiple benefits to the speaker. Some of the benefits are briefly discussed below:-

• Cognitive Benefits- Research studies prove that people who can speak more than one terminology develop a creative thinking skills and an ability to think more flexibly. It is because these people have more than one word for each idea and object. In kids, bilingualism enhances and enriches their mental development

• Character Advantages- When people develop acquaintance with different languages, they can communicate differently with different language speaking people. It enriches their process of communication, because they are able to convince people in their respective speech forms

• Curriculum Benefits- It is noticed that students who are bilingual score better in the tests. Bilinguals can easily grab different subjects and also develop a high academic growth

• Communication Advantages- the bilinguals enjoy reading and writing in different languages. They easily understand other people’s language and thus can easily be a part in a discussion session. When we develop good command over a particular language, our self confidence also gets higher

• Employment Benefits- If we can add more terminologies in the list of our known languages, the chances of getting s job gets increased. The bilinguals can get prosperous career opportunities in the retail sector, transport, tourism, administration, secretarial work, public relations, marketing and sales, banking and accountancy, translation, law and teaching.

Children who are learning to speak two languages follow patterns of learning. The sounds of the first terminology can influence how children learn and use a second terminology.
