WHY A SECOND LANGUAGE?

 

Many children derive benefits from early second language instruction, such as improved overall school performance, superior problem-solving skills, improved creativity and ability to approach complex matters. Learning a second language is a fantastic opportunity to keep young ‘sponge like’ brains stimulated, setting good life-long habits.

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE TO INTRODUCE A CHILD TO A SECOND LANGUAGE?

What's something exciting your business offers? Say it  

The earlier a child learns a language, the better. Studies have shown that children, who learn another language before the age of five, learn with the same part of the brain that they use to speak their mother tongue.
Younger children do not have inhibitions and so will speak naturally and with native pronunciation.

Capullo Montessori Bilingual Preschool is the only school in Boise, Idaho that combines the Montessori philosophy of education with Spanish immersion..

THE CLASSROOM:

 

Capullo Montessori offers a bilingual program where children are taught to communicate in Spanish through various mediums and activities. A full Montessori curriculum provides a rich environment for students to learn spontaneously.  Some core lessons are taught in both English and Spanish to adequately prepare the child for an english based classroom.  In this way, your child gets the best of both worlds.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF LEARNING A SECOND LANGUAGE:

 

  • Learning a second language at a young age is an effective way to greatly advance the development of all children.
  • Research has shown that by the age of six the human brain has achieved almost all of its significant growth.
  • Learning a second language at a young age helps to develop the child's brain pathways in the auditory cortex, stimulating general intelligence.
  • Recent research shows that the brains of multi-lingual people utilize more available neurons for language processing than monolinguals, which naturally expands brain activity as a whole.
  • Spanish is the second most widely spoken language after English by a very wide margin in the U.S.
  • Spanish is spoken by more than 400 million people worldwide, which is sufficient reason to learn the language.
