Are Some Brains Better at Learning Languages?
There may be certain areas in the brain that are enlarged or extra efficient that could lend some language learners an advantage. Studies show that it becomes more difficult to learn new languages as you get older. Neuroscientists are still trying to understand all the various brain regions involved in learning language.
That raises the question: Is there something unique about certain brains, which allows some people to speak and understand so many more languages than the rest of us?
