Learning languages at a young age is becoming more and more popular…and with good reason. Some parents may be concerned that learning a second language may interfere with their child’s developing English skills, but actually the opposite is true.
* Learning a second language at an early age is a life skill which has cognitive and linguistic benefits, helping to shape the brain whilst still at its most flexible stage.
* Research has shown that young children have an amazing capacity to absorb new languages! They hear and reproduce new sounds perfectly and what’s more, they enjoy the process rather than finding it a chore as many teenagers and older learners do!
* Learning a language at a young age significantly aides the acquisition of other languages later in life.
* Children also learn important social skills learning a new language, boosting self-esteem and confidence.
