Early childhood is the best time to start learning a language!
Young children don’t feel anxiety when learning languages. It is a natural process of their day-to-day acquisition of new vocabulary. They are not afraid to speak using new words or to make “mistakes”. They don’t care whether it is grammatically correct or not. They just talk. Over time their brain incorporates the corrections.
Regardless if your child continues their German language acquisition at an elementary, middle, or high school in the future or if he/she no longer uses the language later in life, encouraging bilingual brain development at a young age has proven to have multiple benefits in overall brain development. Language acquisition enhances creativity and problem-solving abilities and opens minds to new cultures and perspectives, which are lifelong skills.
