At The Tutoring Center in Sammamish, Washington, we know for a fact that young children's brains are like little sponges. When given the opportunity and motivation, they can soak up information and retain it. Learning a second, third, or even fourth language early on in his or her educational and neurological development can benefit your child in ways other than communicating with other cultures. Below are a few examples.

Cognitive Development

It has been proven that children learning other languages enhance their cognitive development. Problem-solving, lateral thinking, making decisions are vastly improved with language learning.

Multi-Tasking

Numerous studies have concluded that bilingual children tend to be much more adept at recalling information from short-term and long-term memory, especially verbal information. They can to switch smoothly between tasks. The ability to switch quickly in speaking one language to another makes them more capable of  multi-tasking.

Grade Improvement

Bilingual children tend to achieve higher scores on tests than their single language speaking peers. Also, studies indicate a connection between speaking multiple languages and a higher overall grade point average.

Understanding the Mechanics of English

Learning new languages requires your child to understand the underlying mechanics of any one language, this will also help your child understand her native language, English. A deeper understanding of languages and how they function will positively affect your child's communication skills from essay writing to public speaking.

Cultural Experiences

Becoming fluent in other languages can allow your child access to a whole plethora of literature, film and entertainment from other cultures that can only be appreciated in their original languages. Translations cannot properly capture the essence of many great works of  poetry, literature, or theater from different cultures.
