“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.” – Frank Smith
To prepare your children to be the future leaders, you must give them an environment that encourages them to learn different languages from an early stage. This not only helps them understand the complexities of different languages but also keeps them one step ahead to become a global citizen in the future.
While there is no age for learning a new skill or language, it is easier to master a foreign language when you are young.
Here are the top 3 reasons why you should encourage your little one to take up that foreign language class, afterall.
More Job Opportunities in the Future
This might not be the best reason in your mind right now, considering it speaks of a situation that’ll come your child’s way at least a decade later, but with competition increasing every day, it makes sense to invest from an early stage. Just like you have insured your child's health probably right after his/ her birth, thinking about his/ her future job opportunities will add no harm.
Being proficient in multiple languages will give your child the liberty to try out job opportunities in foreign locations when the time comes. Now as the human brain can learn things better and in an easier manner at a young age, introducing your child to new languages now will ultimately help him/ her. It will also expose him/ her to go for foreign internships, scholarships and career options.
Sharpens Your Child's Brain Power
Researchers and analysts have ascertained that learning multiple languages provides many cognitive benefits to your child. Some of them are prolonged attention span, noteworthy memory improvement and last but not the least, subdued risk of age-related cognitive deterioration.
Do you think that’s all? Hold on a second. Advanced studies states that children who speak multiple languages adopt the ability to delay the chances of having Alzheimer’s disease by more than 4 years in the later stages of life.
Increases Multi-tasking Abilities
In today’s fast-paced world, he who can multitask has the upper hand. However, as simple as it may seem, the actual act of multitasking can be tricky. More often than not, we find people struggling with this.
According to a study by the famed Penn State University, the multilingual brain is better equipped in switching from one task to another effectively. When a multilingual person uses more than one language to converse, he or she uses a lot of brain power to switch between these languages and is more used to multi-tasking.
