There are numerous reasons for learning a language. Cognitive development is often one of the most cited ones. Learning a language is said to improve memory, attention, multitasking performance and mental health. This talk aims to present an overview of the latest research published in this area in order to dispel some myths and highlight the real cognitive benefits of learning a foreign language.
