Being bilingual is not only bank for your brain; it could be instrumental in preventing degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. As stated in an academic journal: 

“Researchers reported in the January 30 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that bilingual people form stronger connections between some regions of their brains than do monolinguals. These beefed-up networks might allow people to adapt to age-related reductions in brain functions.”
