I find this research result amazing! In the short video from this website, I find it mind-blowing when Professor Bialystok explains that bilingualism is such an intense experience that it rewires the brain.
I think it's pretty awesome...one more reason to be happy about raising bilingual/multilingual kids!
Totally! I feel privileged to be trilingual and to be raising my kids trilingual.

Mayken: Last night, I couldn't think of the ml word for puffin, and my daughter beat me to it, in a cute way: It's Papageitaucher (literally parrot diver) but she said Tauchpapagei (diving parrot).

Marisa: "Victory moment:" My almost 4-year-old daughter told me yesterday in the ml (rough translation): "mom, there's something wrong with the cartoons, can you fix it, please?"... she was accidentally watching TV in the ML! So I gladly obliged
