Learning a new language is a super power!
All kids are in capacity to learn a new language, and experts believe that learning a second language before the age of ten will allow the child to have a better pronunciation for the language.
Pronunciation is an important quality for language proficiency. This is due to the physiological changes that take place in a maturing brain as a child enters puberty. In addition, the more time a student dedicates to learning, the more knowledge he or she may acquire. (Marcos, “Learning a Second Language”)
In the US, just 20% of students learn a foreign language. Meanwhile, in parts of Europe that figure stands at 100%.
Bilingualism is becoming a progressively necessary and essential skill for anyone who wants to keep up with today’s rapidly increasing global economy. More and more people recognize the importance of learning an additional language to have better oportunities in jobs and reach good salaries.

-Improved Overall School/Intellectual Performance
