Boost child development

Learning a second language at a young age is an effective way to greatly advance the  development of children, foster empathy, and boost cross-cultural undestanding. 

Brain growth stimulation

Learning a second language at a young age helps to develop the child's brain pathways in the auditorioum cortex, stimulating general intelligence.
