Bilingualism

The advantages of bilingualism:

1. International research shows that being bilingual helps intellectual and cognitive development.

2. Students who are bilingual can often have enhanced self esteem.

3. Students who speak Irish understand their own cultural identity as Irish citizens and as Europeans. There is a better chance that they will understand and respect people of other races and cultures who speak different languages.

4. Being bilingual will help the student learn a third and fourth language.

5. Being bilingual means that there are enhanced employment prospects for students.
