Learning English is critically important for young Vietnamese children and for their parents alike. The English language is an internationally accepted business language that can help advance opportunities and careers or limit them in the case where an individual does not speak or read English well.
Learning a second or even a third language at a young age helps wire the brain in a way that is highly beneficial to the learner. In fact, the many cognitive benefits of learning languages are undeniable. People who speak more than one language have improved memory, problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, enhanced concentration, ability to multitask, and better listening skills.
One of the social benefits of learning a new language is that doors are opened to you around the world. If you’re learning in a group setting, you immediately have new friends to share your new language with. If not, then once you go somewhere and are actually able to employ what you’ve learned, you’ll be surprised how open people are when you speak their native language.
Employers love it when employees are bilingual. Multilingual people are able to communicate and interact within multiple communities. Potential employers consider this a valuable asset in an employee’s skill set, as they’re able to connect with a broader range of people.
It is arguable that bilingualism is becoming a progressively necessary and essential skill for anyone who wants to keep up with today’s rapidly increasing global economy. As more and more people recognize the importance of learning an additional language, those who only speak one language will begin to get left behind in our shift towards a more integrated and connected global society.
When you are multilingual, you have a distinct advantage when traveling that other travelers may not enjoy. Knowing more than one language opens up your vacation destination possibilities. Traveling through a foreign country becomes much easier if you can speak the language of that country. Fluency isn’t required. Locals anywhere appreciate that you’ve taken the time to at least attempt to learn and communicate in their tongue. It shows a greater level of respect and is an easy way to meet new people.
The best part about learning another language is that after learning one, it’s 1000x easier to learn another. As you begin to learn a second language, students find that the acquisition techniques they used can be applied to learning additional languages as well.
So what are you waiting for? If you have a young child, they will benefit immensely from learning another language. Learning English at an early age gives kids a head start in school and in positions them to excel in higher education later in life.
