Summary:

Brought to you by Penguin.

How do two languages co-exist in the same brain?
Why is it possible to forget a language?
What are the advantages and challenges of being bilingual?

Over half of the world's population is bilingual and yet this fascinating, complex ability is understood by few. In The Bilingual Brain, leading expert Albert Costa explores the science of language through a wide range of cutting-edge studies and examples from South Korea to Spain and Canada. Looking at the development of the brain from infancy to old age, Costa shows us the impact of bilingualism on everyday life: from a bilingual's ability to multitask and make decisions to the way in which they interact with those around them.

An absorbing examination of an extraordinary skill, The Bilingual Brain leaves us all with a sense of wonder at how language works.
