A study commissioned by the University of Tasmania in conjunction with the Australian National University has released its findings from a pilot second language program.
The program was run in Northern Tasmania and exposed about 35 children at a childcare centre with a Vietnamese teacher, to see if they could pick up the language.
Lead researcher Vinh To said the study was a first for Tasmania and it was the first time for Australian kids that Vietnamese was the language and culture involved.
She said exposure to a second language at an early education level was crucial for expanding young minds to other cultures.
