Top 6 Reasons Your Child’s quality of life will be enhanced by learning a Foreign Language
Here is an exploration of just a few of the countless ways in which learning a foreign language at a young age is extremely advantageous.
- enhanced problem solving skills
- better critical thinking skills
- children learning an additional language are more creative
- better flexibility of mind

Between ages 8 and 12, your child will lose the capability to hear and imitate new sounds as they did when they were younger, making foreign language acquisition a little more difficult. Once children learn a second language, it is easier for them to understand additional language structures. This is why experts say that every new language learnt is easier than the one before.
Learning a foreign language opens doors that would not otherwise be opened. Bilingual (or trilingual) individuals are able to connect with countless resources, people, places, and opportunities. A foreign language creates a deeper understanding of and appreciation for humanity and culture, which will enrich your child’s life and personal experiences in the world.
