The sooner your child is exposed to language learning, the quicker he or she will learn and stay motivated to learn foreign languages. Studies shows that children who learn a language before the onset of adolescence are much more likely to have native-like pronunciation. Learning a second language does not interfere in learning your native language properly – for example if the native language is English, a number of reports have demonstrated that children who have learned a second language earn higher SAT scores, particularly on the verbal section of the test.
