Childhood is the best time to begin learning another language, while the brain is still absorbing information at its most rapid rate. Children can become bilingual much more easily and naturally than adults, so it worth encouraging your child to develop his or her second language skills as early as possible.
While most children begin to learn some Spanish as a second language in school from an early age, the methods used are overwhelmingly grammar-based. After two or three semesters of Spanish classes, most parents find that their children are either unable to say anything, or feel too embarrassed to express themselves in Spanish.
The best option for improving your child’s Spanish learning is to set them up to take their Spanish classes with a live native-speaker online. This form of lesson puts your child in direct online communication with a professional Spanish tutor who can take what they already know and build on that foundation so that your child learns to communicate effectively in Spanish.
