How many languages do you speak and what you think, is it good to be multi-lingual or monolingual and does multi-languages help in making the brain more alert or not.

Hi there! Interesting question! I speak French (native), English, Spanish, and a little bit of Mandarin. I don't think it makes the "brain more alert" it's just that you can think in multiple languages, which broadens your mind. For me, it's a part of personal development. Speaking several languages has so many benefits ( being more confident to travel, work internationally, having friends all around the globe...), and being multilingual it's definitely something we should encourage more in education.

@cica_laure_mbappe I agree with you Cica and also when we learn a new language, it fills refreshment in boring life. I felt that while learning Korean!!!

I speak Russian, Finnish (learned at school), English, and German For me, language is more about the instrument – to reach people or knowledge

My native language is Latvian and I speak English and a little bit of Russian, Lithuanian and German. For sure, more languages you know, better! In my experience, knowing languages, even basics gives you better job opportunities and the ability to fit in as an expat in a country that doesn't speak your native language.

@linda_liepa True Linda. If we are in another country and don't speak their language, it is difficult to connect with them but when we learn even a little bit, it still becomes easy to interact with them

Hello everyone, I'm native french and speak/write English everyday in my company. I could speak a little bit of German. I really enjoy speaking English but I will not say that it help to make my brain more alert. I will say it brings me more open-mindedness and a wider range of job opportunities. Today, I write a lot in English and I sometimes have more difficulty writing in French... it's funny the things the brain does sometimes!

@rumi4 That's great Rumi, which are these?
I speak Hindi and Marathi fluently. I have full professional fluency in English. I speak beginner's Italian. Being multi-lingual helps you appreciate similarities and differences in different languages and cultures. Being multi-lingual also helps you connect with people of different backgrounds. (I did my PhD in natural language processing. I love human and computer languages)

I think it is good to know several languages for work or business purposes. In my case I speak Spanish as a native speaker and a little English, with a tendency to improve it.
