Multilingualism and the brain – Dr. Hanneke Loerts
We live in a world where most people can understand and/or speak two or even more languages. Do brains of multilingual people look different from the brains of people who speak only one language? And which processes take place in our brain when we speak or listen to different languages? Based on the results of brain research we try to sketch a picture of the multilingual brain, the way our brains deal with different languages and the consequences for the multilingual person.
