Multilingualism is becoming a social norm in Kosovo Benefits of Multilingualism in Kosovo
By using the ‘double first language acquisition’ model children with parents constantly speaking different languages in Kosovo grow up being equally fluent and comfortable with the two home languages and can even learn a third and fourth language. We focused on the home contexts; this is also practical in the classroom contexts whereby students who are exposed to many languages will tend to be intellectually flexible. Enhancement of intellectual flexibility is corroborated by various viable findings on emotionally, intellectually and emotional intelligence. While studying extensively on multilingualism practices, that when parents encourage children to acquire additional languages then they are also investing in the child intellectually. Benefits of multilingualism practices in education were realized by relying on text analysis of the written materials on education and psychology.
. Recent research done by University of London Institute of Education (ULIE) concerning studies on bilingualism proved that when you speak two languages you do better in school. The children who speak at least two languages do better in school than those who speak one language.
