Parents are constantly seeking opportunities to set their children on a path to success. For this reason, early language learning at nursery is a powerful way to lay a solid foundation for the future. Let’s explore how this early exposure can shape a child’s growth and contribute to their life journey:
Boosted Problem-Solving and Critical-Thinking
Early language learning encourages children to think analytically. They’re challenged to decipher meaning, make connections, and communicate effectively when engaging with vocabulary, grammar, and syntax. This linguistic puzzle-solving fosters critical-thinking abilities. In turn, they’re likely to develop a more logical and structured approach to tackling challenges, both in and out of the classroom.
Enhanced Creativity and Listening
Active listening is integral to language learning. To this end, language immersion at nursery accustoms children to listen attentively, to understand not only words and phrases, but also context and tone of voice. What’s more, early language learners often exhibit greater creativity, due to alternative means of expressing their thoughts and ideas in the framework of another language.
Levelled Up Memory, Concentration, and Multi-Tasking
Learning a language takes memorising vocabulary, grammar, and sentence structures. In other words, it’s a process of repetition. And it bolsters memory retention and concentration. Consequently, children who engage in early language learning often display improved cognitive abilities and attention span. Plus, juggling multiple language components simultaneously develops their multitasking skills, which are vital for thriving academically, and in the outside world.
Kickstarted Academic Achievement
The benefits of early language learning extend beyond linguistic competency. In addition, studies have shown that children exposed to a second language at nursery age often excel in other academic areas. It’s an inspiring opportunity to lay a solid foundation for future academic achievements and opportunities.
At La Academia, we’d love to send one of our qualified early years Spanish, French or Mandarin teachers to your nursery. Classes last around 30 to 40 minutes, on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, including all the resources, songs, and activities. And if you have more than one nursery, we can put you on a discounted carousel scheme, for rotated lessons between your sites.
