Foreign Language Benefits for Young Learners

Hola! Bienvenidos! As I reflect on my personal journey learning Spanish, the language was easy to love, but not easy to learn. During the five years of Spanish courses that I completed in high school and college, I learned just enough to (slowly) communicate with Spanish-speaking acquaintances.

This is something that I have continued to refine over the years, and most recently, I have been facilitating my own child’s learning of a second language.

Research suggests that the best time to introduce a new language to a child is from birth through age 10. Because of this, we enrolled my daughter in Spanish at her preschool when she was just three years old. When FLVS released a new Elementary curriculum in August 2018, she was entering Kindergarten. I enrolled her in the Introductory Spanish course to continue building upon the foundation she had with the Spanish language, and two years later, she has completed both the Introductory Spanish and Spanish Level 1 courses.
