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

I have learned tons on bilingualism, language acquisition and feel I had a good introduction to the field of neurolinguistics. I thank Professor Hernandez and everyone involved in organizing this course for the extensive introduction on the academic literature in this field. I feel I have the tools to further my studies based on the material/ingredients provided. What I would suggest for improvement, however, is to also provide accurate spelling for the names of all the researchers introduced. The English transcript was far from accurate. It was possible to check the correct names from quizzes and exams, and I went back to revise the names on my class notes. But for some of the studies without the correct names of researchers it was difficult to look up additional resources. Also, someone else mentioned this earlier but I would also ask for a brief overview of brain regions. I could look up "intro to anatomy" material for med students, but the perspective and density of information is different from the focus of this course, so it was quite challenging to grasp all the regions and their functions mentioned in this course. Over time I got the hang of (a bit) the more frequently mentioned areas, but still, it was challenging to take in when the information is only presented verbally, and all over the place.

That said, I had a great learning experience. Thank you.
