Dvojjazyčnost prospívá výkonu mozku

Mluvit dennodenně několika jazyky je v mnoha, či dokonce ve většině zemí světa běžné: lidé hovoří místními, jedním nebo více úředními jazyky, k tomu téměř všichni ještě ovládají angličtinu, francouzštinu, španělštinu nebo čínštinu. Mnohojazyčnost je tedy z globálního pohledu přirozená a představuje spíše pravidlo než výjimku. V Čechách tomu ale tak není.
