You’ve spent years trying to teach your child English. Correcting their grammar, teaching them to write their name, and even helping them learn bigger and harder words. But have you ever thought about teaching your child another language? It is said that people who have learned a second language have more successes in life. But when should you teach your child a second language and what are the benefits of learning one?When Should Your Child Learn a Second Language?
Many parents are finding out that children who learn a second language between the ages of three and four have a better chance of retaining a second language. “Kids this age are developing language skills rapidly, and they quickly absorb whatever they hear,” according to Erika Levy, PH.D., who is an assistant professor of speech and language pathology at Columbia University Teachers College, in New York City. “They can learn to understand new words in two different languages at an incredibly fast rate.” Many families around the world are jumping on the bilingual bandwagon, helping their children become more worldly and setting them up for success.The Benefits of Teaching Your Child a Second Language
Teaching your child another language can help them reach fluency at an early age. Learning a foreign language while they are young helps children absorb the language much faster. This is because the part of the brain that develops language, the left frontal lobe, is still developing. This allows them to learn languages much faster when they are young because they are easily absorbed. However, the language part of the brain usually stops developing when they are between the ages of eight and 12, making the younger years crucial for new languages. Exposing your child to a second language can also help him or her learn about other cultures and team them to be more creative thinkers. People who are bilingual also have shown better critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and greater mental flexibility. One study even suggests that bilingual individuals have sharper brain functions as they age. Setting your child up with multiple linguistic skills can help them prepare for life as a well-rounded adult.
