~ Acquiring language skills at this early stage of child’s development comes naturally and easily.
~ The demand to speak Spanish is growing, and it is important to give the child the ability to keep up with an ever growing society.
~ Studies have shown that people who are bilingual are much better at different tasks that require multi-tasking and attention focusing than monolinguals.
~ Research shows that children who study a foreign language perform better in their native language than non-bilingual students, as measured on standardized tests.
