There are many benefits to participating in Dual Language Programs. Unlike adults, children have the innate ability to not only process a new language effortlessly, but also acquire clear and perfect pronunciation. Many studies have shown that exposure to a second language from an early age has many additional benefits beyond language acquisition itself. Bilingual children have demonstrated greater problem-solving skills and tolerate differences in others. They also show better memory, greater capacity for abstract thinking, and utilize a broader vocabulary. Having the opportunity to experience a foreign language environment also broadens children's multicultural awareness, stimulates their curiosity about other parts of the world, and fosters an appreciation for understanding multiple points of view.
