Children who have been exposed to a foreign language early often learn to read faster and with greater ease because they are able to recognize the relationship between letters and their sounds without the help of visual objects. Exposure to a second language clearly benefits children’s reading abilities. -(American Psychological Association May 1997)
Children who learn a second language typically have better problem solving abilities, better reasoning skills, and are more creative. -(ERIC Clearinghouse on Languages & Linguistics)
Children with bilingual skills outperform similar monolingual children on both verbal and non-verbal tests of intelligence and typically, have higher SAT or standardized test scores. -(Department of Education, USA & ERIC Clearinghouse on Languages & Linguistics)
Exposing children to a second language not only gives them the ability to communicate with more people but also teaches them to appreciate and respect other cultures and people that are different from themselves.
