In the News: Why bringing up your child bilingual is awesome

A bilingual sign in Hong Kong

I recently found an cool article in Newsweek that makes an interesting argument for bringing up children bilingual. While it's still not understood exactly why, children who are immersed in two languages from an early age receive an extra boost in their brain development. Beyond that, these children grow up with a "global consciousness,"  awesome stuff. Looks like the parents responsible for the blog Bringing Up Baby Bilingual have the right idea.

While Easy Languages currently doesn't offer programs to students this young, we do offer some cool language immersion summer camps in France and Spain for kids ages 12 and up. Check 'um out!
