At Crossing Borders Preschool, we believe wholeheartedly in the power of language immersion programs. The gift of learning a second language is one your child will never forget you gave them. Here are just some of the reasons you should enroll your child in our language immersion preschool in Pearland, TX:
It’s easier to acquire a language now
When it comes to becoming fluent a language, the sooner you begin to learn it, the better. As a preschooler, your child is at a prime age for acquiring a second language. Because of the elasticity of the brain at this age, there will never be a better time for your child to learn a foreign language. After age 10, it becomes significantly more difficult to learn a new language. By enrolling your child in a language immersion preschool, you are giving them an advantage.
They will become fluent more easily
Not only is it easier to learn a new language at a young age, it is far easier to become fluent as well. Children are like sponges for language absorption before age 10; the more of a language they learn, the more they retain. When you enroll your child in our language immersion preschool in Pearland, they are exposed to significantly more of the chosen language than they would be in a traditional preschool class. While your child could learn Spanish in a traditional setting when they are older, it is far less likely that they will gain more fluency than peers who attended language immersion programs.
Language immersion programs are more dynamic
Because we spend more time speaking in a second language, instructors have more flexibility to approach language learning in a variety of ways. While a traditional preschool may teach their students the ABCs in Spanish, teachers in language immersion programs can instruct their students with a much wider variety of materials because the emphasis is on learning a foreign language.
Language immersion promotes compassion and empathy
Speaking in a foreign language forces you to be more thoughtful about what you are saying because you need to try harder to understand and be understood. Learning another language also introduces you to a new culture, forcing you to be more open-minded. The increased inclination towards empathy that naturally comes from learning a second language is something that will serve your child in many areas of their lives.
When you are ready to introduce your child to the many benefits of a language immersion program, Crossing Borders Preschool is ready to help. Contact our preschool in Pearland, TX for more information.
