This course explores the brain bases of bilingualism by discussing literature relevant to differences in age of initial learning, proficiency, and control in the nonverbal, single language and dual-language literature. Participants will learn about the latest research related to how humans learn one or two languages and other cognitive skills.
Kirill Soloviev completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Very interesting and relevant content, although requires a bit of effort to follow from uninitiated people like myself - due to an occasional delve into basic neuroscience. Office hours, where Prof. Hernandez was answering questions from the forums, were a great addition to the course. On the downside, the quizzes were somewhat weak.
Overall - recommended for everyone who is even remotely interested in how several languages work in your brain.
