Until the age of 12, children are able to soak up language naturally, easily picking up native pronunciation and inflection.

It is crucial to take advantage of this “window of opportunity.” Early exposure to multiple languages expands a child’s learning capacity and cognitive ability. Learning a second language enhances native language skills and reading, while also fostering greater creativity and problem solving skills.

Benefits of learning a foreign language during early childhood extend far beyond preschool years. Studies show that language learning leads to higher I.Q. and higher scores on every section of the SAT. Foreign language skills are highly valued by top universities, and are a great way to differentiate yourself on a college application. Most importantly, learning a foreign language as a child teaches an impressionable young mind to understand and appreciate diversity of the beautiful multicultural world around them.
