Give your child a leg up in the academic world by starting early! According to Therese Caccavale, President of the National Network for Early Language Learning: “Studies have shown repeatedly that foreign language learning increases critical thinking skills, creativity, and flexibility of mind in young children. Students who are learning a foreign language out-score their non-foreign language learning peers in the verbal and, surprisingly to some, the math sections of standardized tests.” Furthermore, when a preschool child begins to learn a foreign language, they are capable of developing an accent and fluency that is near-native.
