TOP REVIEWS FROM THE BILINGUAL BRAIN
Amazing and I have learned a lot. I am a Bilingual myself and it really sheds light on how the brain works in terms of learning and being proficient in two languages or more for others.
This course helped me in understanding various aspects of how brain and mind works and how we can use these knowledge for studying different languages and also when we multitasks
This course was so interesting that I completed it in a lot less time than I expected. I really want to thank both the Coursera team and the University of Houston.
A great course for those who are interested in the fascinating bilingual research going on in area. Clearly stated, up-to-date literature shared.
