Studies show that children absorb language more easily at an early age. It can also be said that children have the capability to retain information and acquire skills at an amazing pace. It is important to start learning a different language during this period.
If a new language is introduced at an early age with as much exposure to native speakers the children are more likely to develop their own skills to a near native level. With this approach children gain the confidence they need in order to use the language freely.
