Language learning for bébé

At what age should children start learning languages?

According to Caroline Benoit-Levy, a foreign language teacher in Bordeaux, France, the best ages are up to seven years old. But to really hit the target, introduce your child to other languages before age three.

Benoit-Levy teaches English to French students starting at 12 months and only up to three years of age. The classes are held in a workshop format lasting 45 minutes each. While sitting on mom or dad’s lap, the students sing songs, repeat words and phrases, listen to stories and play games. The variety of activities allows each student to excel in one or more areas.
