Foreign languages contribute to higher levels of thinking

Learning a second language at a young age is advertised as an excellent stepping stone to becoming bilingual, but it also helps children with their thinking and development process.

“In fact, according to studies at the Cornell Language Acquisition Lab (CLAL), children who learn a second language can maintain attention despite outside stimuli better than children who know only one language.”

Learning a language can connect your child to the rest of the world, enhance their education, and put them ahead of the game in terms of success in the classroom.
