Have you got rhythm? If so, you've probably also got good language skills.
Scientists have found that people with a sense of rhythm show stronger brain responses to the sound of recorded speech. And those who struggle with reading find it harder to tap along to a musical beat.
The researchers say that rhythm and language are closely linked, and that practising music could improve language skills. I wonder if environment plays a role, though. Maybe families who encourage children to play a musical instrument are more likely to promote reading too?
