Studying bilingualism

About This Video

If a person speaks more than one language he or she is considered bilingual. The obvious question often asked is whether the brain areas involved in one language are identical to the brain areas involved in the other language. In general, fluent bilinguals seem to use the same language regions for both languages similarly. However, it is difficult to classify bilinguals – depending on when they learned a particular language, how they learned it, which of the language is currently dominant, etc. different results might emerge.
