Find out how mastering the English language is a real advantage for your child
By Hebe Adventures

At what age can we start teaching them English?

The initiation of a child to a language can be done from birth. The earlier your child becomes familiar with the language, the better he or she will be able to understand it later. In addition, when he hears the language of Shakespeare very early, the child progresses quickly in his learning of English. During the period of 3 months, up to 15 years, a child discerns intonations which will allow him to speak a language perfectly without accent later, it is just necessary to choose the linguistic tool most adapted to your child!

Children are able to quickly master new languages. Why not start learning a new language now? Currently, it has been shown that the earlier you learn a language, the better you master it. But at what age should we begin to initiate children? How to do it ? So many questions Hebe will answer.

Good reasons to teach English to your child from an early age:

  1. Children have a phenomenal ability to learn languages up to the age of 16

Indeed, until this age, children retain the most frequent sounds very easily. And their brain registers them in a “USEFUL SOUNDS” category. In the same way, the brain forgets less frequent sounds. It is therefore very important to regularly expose children to foreign languages in order to get used to the pronunciations of words. This will make it easier for them to learn.

  1. Learning English develops intellectual curiosity

While learning a new language is very rewarding, it also helps your child develop other skills such as better concentration, intellectual curiosity or better organization. Without realizing it, the toddler develops his intelligence and learning mechanisms that will be very useful to him.

  1. It's not just a language, but a whole culture

When your child learns English, he also learns the codes and mores of another culture and acquires a better communicative sensitivity. In addition, he will be more open to social exchanges and will be open-minded.

  1. It's a long term investment

For your child, learning English is a real long-term investment. Whether in his personal life or in his future professional life, learning English and developing these skills early will serve him forever and give him the ease and fluency that many people are looking for.

We understand that there are plenty of good reasons to teach a child to speak English as early as possible. How to go about it ?

One of the most important things when deciding to improve your child's knowledge of the English language is choosing the language tool that best suits their needs. You should try to find a stimulating language tool that allows your child to quickly acquire good knowledge, so that they can apply new language skills in everyday life. The best way for your child to obtain such results and become bilingual in English is to go on a language exchange in an English-speaking country.

The objective is to optimize the conditions for learning English through complete linguistic immersion in host families.

However, in order to provide a pleasant and serene language exchange for your child, it is essential to choose an accommodation intermediary who has proven its quality and experience in managing English-speaking host families.
