Studies have shown that sharpening children’s language skills can have profound and lasting benefits, both academically and socially.
Learning a second language has been shown to boost learning in preschool-aged children, potentially giving them an important academic head start.
A recent research from the University of Tasmania’s College of Arts, Law and Education is among the latest to confirm these benefits.
The study found that a Vietnamese language program for preschoolers stimulated the children’s interest in Vietnamese culture, and improved their linguistic, literacy, and numeracy skills.
