Why And How To Teach Your Child A Second Language
Teaching your child a second language before the age of 6 can:
- Help children at school
- Enhance children's cognitive skills e.g. denser tissue in the brain relating to memory and attention
- Increase their professional success in later life
Young children are able to learn up to three languages quite easily, the older they get, the harder it becomes!
