Mandarin Preschool Program
The Jump! Immersion Mandarin Preschool Advantage
Learning a second language has been shown to provide numerous advantages:
Language learning correlates with higher academic achievement on standardized test measures.
(Armstrong, P.W., & Rogers, J.D. (1997). Basic Skills Revisted: the Effects of Foreign Language Instruction on Reading, Math and Language Arts. Learning Languages 2(3), 20-31.)
There is a correlation between bilingualism and memory skills.
(Kormi-Nouri, R., Moniri, S., & Nilsson, L. (2003). Episodic And Semantic Memory in Bilingual and Monolingual Children. Scandinavian Journal of Psychology, 44(1), 47 – 54, from PsycINFO database)
Learning a second language challenges children, resulting in better cognitive flexibility and creative thinking skills.
(Therese Sullivan Caccavale, President of the National Network for Early Language Learning)
