Why Do You Need To Teach Your Child About The Importance Of Language

Why It Is Easier For Children To Learn A Second Language

Children 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.

Benefits Of Learning A Different Languages

  1. It will grow your child’s brain:

    Introducing your child to learn another language at this stage will really create a tremendous opportunity for his/her brain to grow and expand like clay ready to absorb anything
  2. Improves ability to grasp native language:

    It will increase the chances of improving your child’s ability to grasp his/her own native language
  3. Strengthens creativity and imagination:

    One of the surprising ways of nurturing your child’s creativity and imagination skills is by introducing him/her to learning a second language
  4. Sharpens memory:

    Learning a new language enables the brain to work faster and better with improved memory. Learning a new structure familiarizes the mind with new vocabulary and rules
  5. Better problem solving and critical thinking skills:

    There are numerous studies that reveal language learning is more cognitive than linguistic. It trains your child’s mind in thinking critically and using his/her problem solving abilities along with decision making
  6. Academic performance improves:

    With cognitive abilities becoming sharper in other areas, automatically the scope of academic performance improves
  7. Confident personality:

    As the brain starts getting trained and other mental faculties become more powerful, your child’s personality will become far more confident
  8. Culturally aware and enriched:

    If your child is exposed to learning a new language from the early years, he/she will have far more richer knowledge of his/her culture, traditions, festivals, places and people
  9. Improved reading and comprehension:

    Learning a new language in a formal structured manner will make your child’s reading and comprehension abilities better
  10. Able to make more friends from different cultures:

    If your child has learnt a second language he/she will have the opportunity to interact with people from that culture and expand on his/her circle of friends later during cross cultural programs organized by schools or otherwise. It will also allow him/her to learn about others culture, traditions etc. and their styles of communication
  11. Wonderful for gifted children:

    It is a great extracurricular activity for your gifted child. It will keep his/her mind motivated, focussed and stimulated. It will also ensure that they remain enthusiastic
