The best time to learn a second language is as a child. During childhood, the brain is more receptive to language learning than at any other time in life. A second language can enrich the child’s understanding of other cultures and bring future job opportunities in a world drawn ever closer by globalization; many parents today are motivated to raise their children bilingually.The brain is able to learn more than one language by association in a child, affecting bilingual progress, enhancing academic skills on a huge scale.
The second language programs are also available as part of the Kindy/Preschool program, or as Family Home-Tutor programs.
