Sample text

Samantha, on the other hand, studied Spanish in high school and college. She developed such a high degree of fluency and love for the language that she became a Spanish teacher. Having achieved bilingualism herself, she knew it was something she wanted for her own children. So when she had kids, she decided to speak to them only in Spanish. When her children reached kindergarten, they were more fluent in Spanish than they were in English. “I had experienced firsthand how difficult it is learn a language, much less become fluent in it, when you don’t start until high school,” Samantha says.

When speaking their native language, parents are also much more likely to sing nursery rhymes, recite poems, and tell stories to their child. This is important because it leads to a much more varied and elaborate language “input” for the child, and the quality of language that a child is exposed to goes a long way in determining how well he learns the language. In addition, higher level language skills do more than help us speak, read, and write in a particular language with ease: They are crucial for developing a higher level thought process, regardless of what language is spoken.

To prevent misleading recommendations, it’s important for you to be informed and to remind your children’s teachers that bilingual children learn languages differently from their monolingual peers. Comparing the two groups is not helpful. The all-too-common advice doled out by professionals, such as speech and language therapists, educators, and pediatricians, is to limit your child’s exposure to just one language. They continue to offer this advice even though there is absolutely no scientific evidence that dropping one language spurs development in another.
