Learning another language enhances a child’s English capabilities. A young child can easily learn that the words flower and una flor have the same meaning, and that one is in English while the other is in Spanish. Children can learn much about English by learning the structure of other languages. Children who have the ability to switch naturally between languages and are able to converse with different people in those languages feel very good about themselves and their abilities. A sense of real ownership of both Spanish and English can do wonders in raising a child’s self-esteem.
