Benefits of Speaking More Than One Language

"Most children can learn more than one language. The number of people in the United States who are bilingual keeps growing. Being bilingual has advantages, including being better at:

  • Learning new words

  • Learning reading skills

  • Being able to use information in new ways

  • Putting words into categories, like "food" or "toys"

  • Coming up with solutions to problems

  • Listening to others

  • Connecting with others

Children With Speech and Language Problems

Some children have speech or language problems. If a bilingual child does, the problems will show up in both languages. However, learning another language does not cause speech or language problems or make them worse. Talk with a speech-language pathologist, or SLP, if you worry about your child's language skills."
