学习外语的心理好处

Learning a language has plenty of benefits.

Many students and their parents don’t realise that acquiring a second language will be more than just a means of communicating in another language.

学习外语的好处

研究表明,学习一门外语可以带来以下四种好处。

  1. 更强的学习能力
  2. 更好地管理日常工作和责任
  3. 增强记忆能力
  4. 对他人的感受有更深的理解

更大的学习能力

Learning skills and brain functioning are related. Neurological studies have shown that the brains of children who have acquired or are acquiring a second language are actually larger in size than those of other children. The density of grey matter (brain) of the left brain of bilingual children is greater. What does this mean? This part of the brain is responsible for processing information and controlling aspects of sensory perception, memory, and speech. It seems that the brain can grow when needed!

更好地管理日常任务和责任

Bilingual children score higher on tests that involve creative thinking or problem-solving. The ability to translate abstract concepts from one language to another seems to also develop the skill of looking at problems in more than one way.

增强的记忆能力

It is not surprising that the vocabulary size is doubled for many second language learners. They acquire vocabulary in the same amount in each of their languages—their first and second. However, the vocabulary of monolingual children is confined to their one and only language.

更深入地了解他人的感受

更深刻地理解他人的感受的能力也被称为移情。掌握双语要求人们将自己的语言与他人的语言相匹配。这也提高了他们的社会智力水平。这导致许多双语者变得更有社会意识。他们学会了有比一个人更多的方式来看待现实。他们更有能力 "驾驭和谈判复杂的社会关系和环境"。

Finally, and most importantly, because bilingual children acquire a greater capacity to sense the emotional state of other people, they become more sensitive to the importance of congeniality among family relationships, for example. Many become advocates of neighbourliness and peace at both community and societal levels.
