Why is learning a language at an early age important?
Companies hiring in today’s global economy are typically looking for workers who know different languages or have a good understanding of other cultures. According to the National Research Council, knowledge of other languages can enhance your career opportunities, helps with travel, and enables individuals to learn about different cultures.
Languages help prepare children for the future
In a survey released by the American Graduate School of International Management, the majority of participants claimed that they had gained a competitive advantage in the workplace due to their knowledge of foreign languages and cultures and that it played a key role in their hiring process. They also stated that this knowledge and exposure taught them mental discipline, led to personal fulfillment, and gave them cultural enlightenment which are all elements that our After School Languages program strives to provide for our students.
