It is proven that children who grow up learning a foreign language from a young age can enjoy many benefits. Children’s brains are able to soak up a foreign language at an impressive rate and here are some of the top reasons why you should encourage them to learn another language now!
- Better Linguistics
Children’s brains are developmentally ready to accept and learn a foreign language, and fluency comes fairly easily, rapidly, and without accent. Their brains are like a sponge! It just gets more difficult as we grow older to learn a language.
- Cognitive Benefits
Research shows that language learning is more cognitive than linguistic, this means that your child will benefit from better problem solving skills, improved critical thinking skills, more creativity, an enhanced memory and they will be better at multi-tasking!
- Higher Academic Achievement
Bilingual students have better maths skills, higher standardised test scores and their proficiency in their own native language also improves. Their overall academic performance is enhanced and when they grow up and enter the adult world bilingual students have a competitive edge in the workforce.
- Cultural Enrichment
Learning a foreign language opens doors that would not otherwise be opened. Learning another language creates a deeper understanding of and appreciation for humanity and culture, which enriches one’s life and personal experiences in the world. Who knows who they might meet!
- Societal Contributions
Want your child to change the world? Every parent wants to help their children to become well-rounded individuals who have a love for learning and an appreciation for other cultures. Learning a foreign language can help children to grow up to be a successful and contributing members of society!
