Why we want bilingual students
The study of a second language from a young age offers to our students a new social and cultural perspective and is one of the best gifts a child can receive as it shapes his or her brain for a lifetime. At Pazapa Online, we believe that an early introduction to a second language develops an empathetic , metalinguisticly aware brain and that reaching bilingualism and biliteracy will increase our students’ chance to become more socially aware of foreign cultures, which will enable them to interact with others using their new tool.
The bilingual child is ,thus, capable of communicating clearly with different groups and has more opprotunities to bond with individuals from other cultures. Studies have shown that bilinguals have a better level of focus and control and are more likely able to regulate their behavior in order to adjust to different groups.
Reasearchers have found that actively using two languages not only optimises social and emotional development but also stimulates cognitive development. When a child knows multiple languages , these languages coexist in the brain and enable the child to multi task as he or she is used to switch back and forth between different language systems. They also learn from an early age to focus and filter information and are introduced to problem solving on a whole different level. Dual-language learners have better memories and recall information faster ; they generally score have somewhat higher test scores and are more prone to acquire a third language or beyond.
In addition ,to the immense advantages of bilingualism, children can benefit from an early exposure to the English language in countless ways. As it has been established by K. Anders Ericsson and Malcolm Gladwell, in order to speak an language well , 10,000 hours of study are necessary. To give your child this « leg up » register him or her in the Early Bird section.
