Learning A Foreign Language: Don’t Wait!

Have you considered having your child learn a foreign language? Now is the time! According to Lead with Languages, “it’s never too early to begin learning a language: it’s fun, it promotes healthy development, and the many cognitive and social benefits will last a lifetime.” Here are some advantages to having your child learn a foreign language:

  • Gives Your Child A Head Start Children are like sponges when it comes to learning a new language. Studies show that the best time for a child to learn a new language is between the ages of six and thirteen.
  • Boosts Academic Achievement Overall, learning a second language improves reading, writing, and math skills and increases standardized test scores.
  • Develops Cultural Sensitivity  Exposing your child to other languages helps foster an interest, empathy, and tolerance for other cultures.
  • Improves Creativity & Mental Flexibility Learning a second language also improves problem solving, listening, memory, and concentration skills.

Spanish is a great place to start.

So, you’ve decided that you would like your child to learn a new language. Which language should you choose? Spanish is a great place to start because it is the second most spoken language in the United States and the world. We are connected globally in a way we never have been before. Learning Spanish offers your child a unique advantage to easily communicate and connect with more people around the world.

Learning Spanish has some pretty amazing benefits. So, what are you waiting for?
