Why Do You Need To Teach Your Child About The Importance Of Language?
Created by Sugandha Tiwari Updated on Feb 21, 2018
Why It Is Easier For Children To Learn A Second LanguageChildren who are exposed to multiple languages at a young age have a much easier time processing and remembering the information. Your child’s brain at a young age is super sharp and flexible to absorb stimulus from the environment around. Their brain is constantly learning things at the subconscious level. They do not have to put much effort and get into complexities of learning rules of language. They just associate words with their meanings along with visuals.
Children at a young age are explorers and fearless. They literally do not know what is humour, what is right or wrong, what is funny, they don’t know what are mistakes or what is perfection, what is dialect or what is accent? Thereby, they unabashedly play with language and express themselves. They enjoy learning it in the true sense. All these are key reasons why their learning capacity reaches its full potential and grasps language smoothly in comparison to adults.
