Benefits of Bilingualism

Bilingualism opens the door to the possibility of communicating with more people in more places and develops essential skills for living and working in a globalised society.

Research tells us that critical thinking and problem-solving skills improve, as do flexible thinking abilities, creativity and the ability to concentrate.

Bilingual education:

  • maximises students’ linguistic proficiency in both languages
  • provides a challenging and engaging academic environment
  • enhances academic achievement in all learning areas
  • raises students awareness of diverse cultures and cultural perspectives
  • promotes open-mindedness and a spirit of inquiry
  • can improve employment opportunities in Australia and abroad.
