Benefits of Being Bilingual

Learning a second language at an early age has many, many benefits including:

  • Having a positive effect on intellectual growth.
  • Enriching and enhancing a child’s mental development.
  • Giving students more flexibility in thinking, greater sensitivity to language, and a better ear for listening.
  • Improving a child’s understanding of his/her native language.
  • Giving a child the ability to communicate with people s/he would otherwise not have the chance to know.
  • Opening the door to other cultures and helping a child understand and appreciate people from other countries.
  • Giving a student a head start in language requirements for college.
  • Increasing job opportunities in many careers where knowing another language is a real asset.
