How does early education play a role in how we perceive other people and cultures? Could language immersion change the way we think?
Students who learn a second language score better on reading comprehension tests than children who only speak English, say researchers.
Research shows that language immersion boosts cognitive abilities, regardless of age. One of the benefits is a better memory, which is important for passing exams and improving quality of life.
Although people can learn a new language at any age, research shows that children under 10 are most likely to succeed in language acquisition with native-speaker proficiency.
Did you know that kids who enroll in a Spanish immersion preschool could boost brainpower? Scientists say bilingual children are more intelligent, have more brain cells, and may even have increased brain size.
While many schools in the San Francisco Bay Area have closed their doors for the foreseeable future, essential workers can still benefit from childcare services at KSS Immersion Preschool, where children can also cultivate Spanish fluency.
Research shows that a second language can add up to 15 percent to someone’s salary, and provides unparalleled travel and social opportunities. Here are some of the potential long-term benefits for preschoolers who attend a language immersion school in San Francisco.
Learning a second language provides a wealth of benefits that go well beyond the simple ability to talk to more people. The benefits of multilingual education affect everything from academic and career success to improved health.
Combining quality early childhood education with a Spanish immersion program gives our students a leg up in their education and their lives.
For the parents that value multilingualism - beginning their child's formal learning with an immersion preschool is a natural fit.
Not only does the knowledge of another languages help to keep the cultural heritage of the family alive, it also helps to provide the preschooler with advantages later in life. No doubt that being fluent in more than one language provides personal and professional opportunities in the future.
There are many benefits of multilingualism and we are so very proud to be a part of that for all our amazing students.
