The earlier a child is immersed in another language, the greater his or her ability to become proficient.
Multilingualism has been proven to offer immediate cognitive advantages to kids and to help their brains work more efficiently.
Brain activity tests show that bilinguals have a heightened ability over monolinguals to monitor their immediate environment and keep track of what’s going on more efficiently.
Not only cognitive skills will improve, their socials abilities will also benefit from it.
Multilingual environment offers social experience that provides routine practice while considering the perspective of others, therefore empowering the basics skills of interpersonal understanding. It will give them superior communication skills and contribute to a broader perspective. (Kinzler, 2016).
A 2008 study published in Applied Developmental Science supports evidence that a bilingual child’s ability to operate between two languages strengthens mental flexibility, self-control/self-regulation and the ease of switching between mental tasks. More recent studies demonstrate the power of switching between two languages builds brain flexibility and improve creativity in problem solving skills.
Not only early childhood language immersion enhanced cognitive and social development, openness to other cultures but will also improve skills in the child’s native language.
