Hixson child day care: Brain development and a second language

Posted on 08-27-2014


Introducing your child to a new language will help improve brain development. This will aid with brain structure as the child becomes an adult. By teaching your child a second language you stimulate neural growth and connections. As a result, and as your child get older, he or she may have the ability to learn more complex motor skills. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Hixson runs a successful brain development program. It is intended to enhance and support neural pathways for language, social-emotional, cognitive and physical development. We have compiled useful information on the benefits of introducing your child to a new language below.

Benefits of learning a new language

The younger your child is, the easier it will be for him or her to learn a second, third and fourth language. As your child gets older it becomes more difficult. This may happen as early as nine months. Studies show that a brain of a child who is multilingual is:

  • Quicker
  • Nimbler
  • Is able to resolve conflicts
  • Deals better with ambiguities

This can be a huge advantage for your child as they go through day care, elementary school and beyond.

Other advantages for your child being multilingual or bilingual include:

  • Connecting to others
  • Great listening skills
  • Being able to learn new words easily

Your child will have greater neural activity in the dense tissue in the areas of the brain that deal with memory and attention.
