Want to maintain a healthy mind and good memory?

You just need to learn a new language!

Yes, it is that easy!

Research from the University of Edinburgh shows that the process of learning a language can delay cognitive decline by 4.5 years. This effect is observed even in people who are illiterate and in people with just a basic knowledge of their second language. Therefore, it is not caused by the general level of education but by the process of switching to a different mental framework and way of thinking. Also, you don’t need to be fluent, your brain will benefit enormously if you just learn the basics of a new language.
