In today’s world, there are over 7000 languages and learning at least one will help children in life greatly. It has been proven that it is easier for children to learn a second language. Here at The Apple Tree Learning Centers, we believe it is certainly never too late to learn, and the benefits definitely reward the effort and dedication.

Medical studies have shown the positive effects of learning a second language has on the brain. Studies showed that learning a second language significantly delayed the onset of many brain-related diseases such as Alzheimer and dementia, compared to those who can only speak their native tongue.

Learning a new language gives children a greater understanding of the world we live in. Even by learning a few phrases, never mind a whole language, they will access many fascinating cultures around the world and understand the differences between the two or more countries.

Different cultures have their own music, style, history, literature and many more interesting things which children will be able to enjoy and understand. Children will be able to connect through books, TV, the internet and converse with whole countries worth of people, ultimately broadening their horizons, interests and views. A whole new world will be open to them.

Spanish Program Benefits

One of the most overlooked benefits of learning a second language is the underlying linguistic knowledge that is acquired. Since the acquisition of native languages is such an involuntary process, many of the rules of language form and structure are not consciously understood as much as they are naturally accepted.

When an individual is faced with the challenge of learning a language later in life, the process is much a much more conscious, academic, and theoretical one. The Apple Tree Learning Centers knows how important it is to start acquiring this information when children are young and their minds are fresh.

Rules, structures, and forms are identified and committed to memory while the children work to incorporate those new structures into their mind. The act of identifying structures and forms in a new language goes a long way towards being able to recognize similar aspects in the children’s native language.

Often, the process of learning a new language actually improves the children’s understanding of their native language as well.
