The age at which children learn a second language can have a significant bearing on the structure of their adult brain, according to a new joint study by the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital - The Neuro at McGill University and Oxford University.

Many do so with great proficiency particularly if the languages are learned simultaneously or from early in development.
