Many researchers thought that monolinguals were superior to bilinguals in the 1950s. I think it is case by case. However, I want to speak English more fluently now. When I come to the occasions that I need English skills, such as reading some reports of the research and writing my thesis about the plants, I always think if I could use English well, I may succeed in. I am envious of the people who are able to use English without inconvenience. With my experiences, I think bilinguals are smarter than monolinguals. Let me know your opinions!
