I’m going to be quite honest that I don’t understand the science behind this… but a University of Vermont study takes a look at the “positivity” in different languages. The results find that Spanish is the happiest language in the world, followed by Brazilian Portuguese, English and Indonesian (reports ABC7).
So my bilingual life puts me in the 1st and 3rd places for happiest languages. Nice.
If you want to read the entire study (and more power to you if you do) check it out at the University of Vermont.
