Learning a new language can help you dodge weird stares from locals when you attempt to ask where the nearest bathroom is, but did you know that it can also help you turn into a semi-genius? It turns out that mastering a new language does some really cool things to your brain, like enhancing your memory and ability to focus. It can also increase your attention span. Again, really cool.
