Palma de Mallorca Cathedral Beach

My Erasmus in Palma de Mallorca

Hi, it’s Sam again! Today I’m going to tell you about my Erasmus experience that I had two years ago.

During my university studies, I had the opportunity to study abroad as part of the Erasmus program. Studying english philology at the time, I wanted to go to a Spanish speaking country since it was the language I wanted to work on the most despite what I was studying. And one of the universities that offered such courses in Spain and that was a partner of my university was the UIB, la Universitat de las Illes Baleares. So, after sorting the different paperwork, I was off to Palma de Mallorca to live abroad for the first time.

why should children learn a second language

5 reasons for children to learn a foreign language

As Hola People, we aware of how much is important for children to learn a second language like adults. And, we are willing to tell you 5 reasons for children to learn a foreign language.

Let’s begin!

 

1- For speaking to more people Steps to learn a foreign language

Do you know how many languages are spoken in the world? And, how many people can you communicate with if you learn how to speak one more language? Let me tell you, Spanish gets you to speak approximately 420 million people. Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world.

When you learn a foreign language as a child or teach a second language to your children and they will have a whole life to get advantages of it. To have more career opportunities, to understand deep insight about how others see the world, to have more fun when you travel, to have varied friendships and so on.

foreign languages for children2- It’s easier to learn for children

Years ago people believed that learning a second language would confuse a child. Now, research proves that children who speak a second language perform better than non-bilingual students, in standardized tests.

Let’s imagine, you and your child start to learn Spanish at the same time. Do you know who will speak better after a year? Definitely, the answer is your child. And, many researchers believe that learning a foreign language before the puberty and even better earlier it allows children to speak more fluently, almost like native speakers because their brain is as “sponges” for learning a language. Also, they speak beyond biases. They don’t care if they make a mistake about grammar, vocabulary. That makes them speak easier and faster.

Also, there’s much less complex information to digest for children.  Kids usually only learn to associate words with their meanings. But in adulthood, we make it more difficult to learn a second language.

3- Advantages to personality and skillsto learn foreign languages improves overall comprehension

Studies have shown that when two children start to learn an instrument who speaks a second language perform better than the non-bilingual student. And, Bilinguals are better at identifying musical pitches.

Moreover, do you know those who speak a second foreign language may be able to delay 4.5 years for diseases like Alzheimer’s?

to learn a foreign languageis better at task4- Empathic ability

Dr Kinzler explains, “children in multilingual environments have social experiences that provide routine practice in considering the perspectives of others: they have to think about who speaks which language to whom, who understands which content, and the times and places in which different languages are spoken.”

It includes understanding people, culture, traditions. This speciality gives the ability to figure out complex things and trying to see how others perspective. Recently, it’s a very significant thing for seeing how the world is because the world doesn’t consist of only our country.

 

5- For having more career opportunitieschildren who study a foreign language perform better in their native language

Whatever you are studying, wouldn’t you want to touch other people with your knowledge as well? It is possible with a second language.

Now and in the future, being bilingual crosses the borders for career options. Options can be in education, healthcare, social work, national security, translation, tourism, and international business and these jobs require or favour candidates who are bilingual, resulting in more job opportunities for those who can speak a second language.

 

 

Good news! We have a new online Spanish course for children.
