Enrich Your Child’s Life with Foreign Language Speaking!

You may be wondering what the other benefits of learning a foreign language are—outside of knowing a second language. Studies have shown that learning a second language boosts brain development and helps your child be more creative and better problem solvers! Is there anything better than that for your developing child?

Also, we never know exactly where life will take our child some day, and learning a foreign language will be just one more tool in their belt. Maybe they go on the mission field or decide to work abroad. They will already have the skills of knowing a second language or knowing how to learn another language.

How is learning a foreign language beneficial for kids?

Answered by Eileen

Hi moms and dads.

I know some of you have the same question that I did.

“Is learning a foreign language actually going to be beneficial

to my child?”

Well, the answer is a resounding

“yes”!

I actually did research on this topic myself before we decided

to jump into TalkBox.Mom to make sure it made sense

for my family, and to know the long-term effects of learning

a foreign language. And the research was very clear; learning

a second language helps boost brain

development, it helps your child be more creative, and it helps

them become problem solvers.

Is there anything better than that for your developing child?

I don’t think so! And let’s talk about when they grow up.

Maybe they graduate from college and want to study abroad,

or maybe they want to go and be a missionary in a foreign

country. When they get there,

they’re already going to have a grasp of the language.

They’re not going to be flipping through a phrase book, frantically

trying to learn something on the side of the street.

They’re going to be confident in their abilities.

Also, let’s talk about job opportunities.

There’s not an employer out there who isn’t going to love

that your child can talk in two languages, or three languages.

The doors are going to swing open with opportunities for

your child!
