Article on Growing up Bilingual and the Benefits of Language Learning

http://www.greenfieldreporter.com/view/story/e9a8cd395f5348659599ccb66e988b1e/IN–Exchange-Spanish-Playgroup

This article identifies some of the benefits of being exposed to a second language at a young age.

“There are multiple benefits to learning another language, according to Seidl. Studies show that individuals who grow up bilingual are better at different tasks such as problem solving…”

“Children can also benefit from just hearing two languages spoken. This helps with later language learning…”

“Learning a second language becomes challenging after age 8 and even more difficult after age 16…”

I feel truly lucky to do what I do at JA, knowing that students’ exposure to Spanish gives them a variety of tools for future learning.
