8- Most instruction is very often boring, unchallenging, and lacking compassion.

Three major benefits of dual language learning

1- Researchers have found that actively using two languages seems to have a protective effect against age-related dementia.
2- In studies covering six states and 37 districts, they have found that, compared with students in English-only classrooms or in one-way immersion, dual-language students have somewhat higher test scores and also seem to be happier in school. Attendance is better, behavioral problems fewer, parent involvement higher.
3- It turns out that, in many ways, the real trick to speaking two languages consists in managing not to speak one of those languages at a given moment — which is fundamentally a feat of paying attention.
