...That introducing a second language at a young age will confuse them...
You've heard this right?!
...However what you might not realize is that it's NORMAL for kids in places like Europe to grow up with multiple languages, from BIRTH!
...Not only are they NOT confused, but they are also growing up with additional academic / social and emotional benefits, our monolingual kids were missing out on!
...I felt betrayed... and upset that nobody was talking about this!
But the TRUTH IS...
The language learning industry doesn't want you to know that there is a small window of time available to learn best - they would rather us learn as adults and struggle our way through
- so we spend more money on additional support products to 'help' us.
So don't let anyone tell you that you'll confuse your kids!
Exposure to a second language from an early age is the ONLY way to teach our kids how to speak with native-like proficiency.
