Beginning foreign language instruction early sets the stage for students to develop advanced proficiencies in one or more languages.
Younger learners have the capacity to develop near native-like pronunciation and intonation in the new language. Studies also suggest that children who learn a foreign language receive cognitive benefits that extend to learning in other subjects. Immersed students typically demonstrate higher mental flexibility on tasks, ability to problem solve more fluidly and better communication skills.
Being bilingual enhances opportunities in government, business, law, medicine and health care, teaching, technology, the military, communications, industry, social service, and marketing.
