Firstly, language learning is unique in its ability to stimulate the mind and keep the brain young and healthy.

Research shows that those who can speak a second language tend to develop dementia 4 to 5 years later than those of us who can only speak one. Being bilingual also makes you far more likely to recover from a stroke.

These astounding facts mean that speaking a second language has greater benefits than any treatments or pharmaceutical interventions currently developed for brain ageing.

Secondly, language learning is a fun way to bring people together to build confidence, experience something new, learn about a different culture, create new connections, and have a laugh. For all the health benefits of language learning, we still want participants to feel relaxed and have a good time.

That’s why we like to say language learning is good for the brain and good for the banter. When we get the learning environment right that’s when the benefits start to be seen: improved concentration, enhanced communication, heightened multi-tasking ability, and bolstered over-all well-being! 

Finally, we have recently attained Approved Centre Status by SQA (Scottish Qualification’s Authority) meaning that we can now offer National Level 2 qualifications to our care home/day centre learners as part of their Lingo course.

This wonderful development serves to reinforce the Lingo ethos that it’s never too late to learn, and that learning should be a life-long endeavour that can live on beyond school!
