Hey Fellow Boomers - I'm learning French to (hopefully) delay dementia

Just ordered Rosetta Stone - I'm going to try learning French for the 4,000th time!

"The journal Neurology has published a review of research showing that bilingualism delays the age at onset of dementia. In this study, overall it was found that patients who were bilingual developed dementia 4.5 years later than patients who spoke only one language. There was a particularly significant difference observed in age at onset with Alzheimer disease dementia as well as frontotemporal dementia and vascular dementia."
