Why not wait until middle or high school to learn a second language?

Much research has shown that young children’s brains have a greater capacity for learning language.  There is a window of opportunity when our brains are still developing that makes learning language a natural process, even when learning multiple languages.   Studies have concluded that it is easier to hear and reproduce new sounds, develop fluency and use the appropriate accent before the age of 10 than later in life when this becomes more difficult.  The earlier that your child is introduced to a second language, the easier it will be for them to pick it up the language and near native accent at an impressive rate.
