Besides being able to use the language when travelling abroad, learning a foreign language can have many other benefits:
- Improves memory and listening skills.
- Boosts problem-solving and critical thinking.
- Enhances concentration and ability to multitask.
A young child will learn the language faster, retain it better and most often speak it with near-native pronunciation. Academically, children who have learnt a language in primary school find it easier to cope with the demands of learning a foreign language at secondary school, even if it is a different one. In addition, learning a second language could boost the children’s confidence and self-esteem, as it offers an opportunity for them to teach their parents and siblings or impress their family and friends. At the Club, the children are offered the chance to meet weekly with a native qualified teacher and learn basic Spanish through songs, games and fun activities. Parents can sign up by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
