Bilingualism Matters Madrid launched on Monday 21st June 2021, hosted by the Center for Cognitive Science at Nebrija University.
The BM Madrid branch aims to communicate what researchers at the Center for Cognitive Science know about bilingualism and language learning to enable people to make informed decisions about languages in their personal and professional lives. They also aim to raise awareness of the benefits of speaking a second language and the consequences it can have at both a cognitive and a social level.
Researchers in the branch work on various aspects of bilingualism (e.g. second language learning and teaching, social cognition and foreign languages), and they aim to communicate their findings to the general public, including parents, teachers, health professionals and policy makers.
Bilingualism Matters Madrid, based at the Center for Cognitive Science at Nebrija University, will be formally launched by Prof Antonella Sorace today, Monday 21 June 2021.
