The benefits of learning French for Children

Young children

Young children are like sponges – they listen, adsorb and copy the sights and sounds around them. Children haven’t yet mastered their mother tongue, so learning a different language comes quite naturally to them. Studies have shown that if a child starts learning a language at an early age, he or she will find learning that language a lot easier when they are older.

Learning another language has also been shown to improve a child’s appreciation of their own language. Did you know that French has contributed more words to the English language than any other language? Your child will also have a greater appreciation of English grammar, vocabulary and structures. 

Learning about another country also opens childrens’ eyes to other cultures and ways of living. There’s a whole world out there to explore!


Improve academic results

Studies have shown that learning a foreign language actually helps improve student results in maths, reading and language arts. Learning French will improve problem solving skills, memory and self discipline.

As years of foreign language study increase, math and verbal SAT scores increase. (1) Children who study a foreign language often have higher standardized test scores in math, reading, and language arts.
