Benefits of children learning a foreign language:
It’s easier for a developing child to acquire a foreign language.
Children are “sponges” for learning and learning a second language comes much more natural at a young age. Research shows that there is a “critical period” for language acquisition, when your brain is primed to learn.
They can speak to more people
Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world with English being the third most spoken language! So learning a foreign language as a child they have a lifetime to benefit from cross-cultural friendships, broader career opportunities as adults, exciting travel adventures and deeper insights into other cultures and how others see the world.
It grows kid’s brain
Studies have shown that people who are bilingual are better at tasks that require multi-tasking and attention focusing than monolinguals. Brain scans show they have more gray matter in the regions of their brain that are involved in executive function. The hypothesis is that the effort to constantly choose the right language at the right time provides a “mental gymnastics” for bilinguals which gives them extra practice in focusing their attention.
It boost children’s own ability in their native language
Years ago people believed that learning a second language would confuse a child. Now, research shows that children who study a foreign language perform better in their native language than non-bilingual students, as measured on standardized tests. Other research has shown that children learning a second language start reading earlier, and the advantage increases the earlier they are exposed to the second language.
It can increase out of the box thinking
Much has been written about how many jobs in the future will be automated – with tasks requiring ingenuity and creativity being left to humans. How then to build creative thinking skills in children? One of the surprising ways is by learning a second language. Several studies have demonstrated greater creativity and problem solving skills amongst bilinguals. Learning a foreign language helps children see the world through different lenses. The ability to consider multiple viewpoints to a problem is a cornerstone of creative problem solving.
Don’t wait, give your child the advantage and opportunity of a lifetime!
