The BM Madrid branch aims to communicate what researchers from the Madrid area 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 at BM Madrid 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.
