This course provides lost of data and valuable information for those who are interested in bilingualism and how the brain works.
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.
I learned how languages are acquired, lost, and maintained and the myths associated with those topics.
This class covered many different aspects of bilingualism (and multiligualism) and included evidence from research.
