I am for teaching students starting 1st grade foreign languages and making it a main subject too. It will improve their general information and allow them to be hired in a better job and will also help them communicate much better.

I think first grade is a little early for children to learn a foreign language because they are still trying to speak their own language.

And I disagree, because a child knows how to speak in their language just as they turn three or maybe earlier. so giving them a few steps into a foreign language is amazing for their general knowledge and communication skills.

I just think that starting them in a foreign language should start around 2nd grade instead of first because in first they are still getting used to the whole school and homework scene.

Maybe, but in my school, students are taught: Arabic, English, French and Chinese, starting first grade.And they turn out to be fluent and smart in these new languages.
