Bilingual Toddler – Benefits!

Fact: Learning another language does not cause speech or language problems to get worse! Research shows that learning another language has a TON of benefits for your little one.

1 Educational benefits: research has shown that bilingual children preform better on tests that involve abstract thinking and problem solving.

2 Language benefits: once a child has learned a second language, it makes it easier for them to pick up additional languages.

3 Cultural benefits: a child who knows more than one language is more open and adaptable to change.

4 Employment benefits: being bilingual significantly increases employment down the road.

Children can learn languages at home, school, or in the community through conversation, books, music, video, or language programs. Overtime, the dominant language may shift back and forth depending on the amount of exposure. That’s nothing to worry about. Just remember that practice makes perfect!
