Kids

Children can learn new language at home only if any relative or family member communicates with them in that language on a daily basis. By learning a foreign language, children become better learners, better thinkers and thus become better citizens of the world.

If you have the resources to teach foreign languages, it will be good for your child’s overall growth and play an important role in their personality development. Being bilingual positively affects a child’s academic performance, brain development and also helps them grow into well-rounded global citizens.

There is no evidence of such a thing happening. Instead, this only enhances a child’s capability of grasping information quickly. Bilingual children coordinate and negotiate information across their languages. Bilingualism does not cause any communication disorders.

Studies reveal that ages 3-4 years are the most conducive for learning a new language. So if your child is a pre-schooler it is the best time for them to learn a new language. It doesn’t matter if they have crossed this age. The sooner you get them started the better.

Learning a language like Chinese requires time and patience. The process might not be as quick as you might expect as an adult. Children usually learn language through natural interactions where the more the child interacts in the given language, the faster and better s/he learns. In case you don’t have such an environment for your child to be able to practice another language on a daily basis, then it is important to keep them in-touch with the language at a slow and steady pace.

Children at a young age have unbelievable learning ability and can learn the new language provided with the appropriate environment for speaking and practicing the same.

For English speaking children, it’s easy to learn a second language such as Spanish and French as compared to far eastern languages such as Korean, Japanese and of course, Mandarin Chinese.
