Top 3 Reasons Your Child Will Benefit from Learning a Foreign Language

Marta with studentChildren’s brains are able to soak in a foreign language in an impressive way. Not only that, but kids are essentially able to learn to speak the language perfectly and without an accent.

Children who grow up learning a foreign language benefit tremendously, in many different ways:

1. Better Linguistics

Exposing a child to a foreign language will result in easier and better fluency than if they learn later in life. Ever heard of children referred to as “sponges”? This phrase is so accurate when it comes to a child learning a foreign language.

2. Higher Academic Achievement

Learning a foreign language develops:

  • better problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • more creativity
  • better flexibility of mind
  • enhanced memory
  • better multitasking abilities

All this results in better academic performance. Bilingual students have been shown to have higher math skills and standardized test scores.

3. Cultural Enrichment

As parents, we want our children to be well-rounded, to have a love for learning and an appreciation for other cultures, and to grow up to be a successful, contributing member of the community.

Learning a foreign language opens doors that would not otherwise be opened. Bilingual or trilingual individuals have access to resources, people, places, and things that some of us do not have. A foreign language provides a competitive edge in the workforce, creates a deeper understanding of and appreciation for humanity and culture.
