There are an amazing amount of benefits to learning a second or even third language while children are young. Children that can speak languages other than their own have many advantages over their monolingual peers. The Tutoring Center in Hoover, Alabama would like to offer you a few reasons why having your child learn a different language is advantageous.

Brain Function

Children's brains are like little sponges. They soak up knowledge so much faster than us adults do. This is why children learn languages much easier. Learning a second language promotes cognitive development, lateral thinking, and decision making. Many studies have shown that multilingual children score higher on standardized tests as well.

Multi-Tasking & Recall

Numerous scientific research studies conclude that learning a second language helps your child become more adept at recalling information and multi tasking. This is due to the brain being able to switch fluently from one language to another, and also due to the fact that learning another language requires remembering a lot of extra information, such as the grammatical and syntactic rules such as learning multi words for one meaning. 

Enhances the Understanding of English

Learning a new language requires your child to comprehend the underlying mechanics of how languages work, including her own native language, English. A deeper understanding of languages and how they function will positively impact your child's communication skills such as essay writing and public speaking.

Cultural & Career Experience

Becoming fluent in another language will open doors to different cultural experiences such as literature, film and entertainment that can only be appreciated in its native language. Also think of the career opportunities when your child becomes an adult. Being bilingual will work in her favor when she is looking for a job that may have foreign clientele.
