It is a great idea to start exposing your children to the sounds of a language from a young age and to start learning one before secondary school. There are many benefits to learning from a young age. Here are the top ones for me:
I have, as a parent and a teacher of Early Years, experience of teaching a new language to young children. I can honestly say that children as young as 3 have loved learning Spanish with me. One boy said my daughter was ‘Very lucky’ to have me as a mum so she could learn with me. How sweet! They may not remember most of the new words from one week to the next, but with twenty minutes once a week this is not surprising. They do remember songs though and this is a great way to get used to sounds and phrases.
