Should foreign language be taught in kindergarten?

  • Waaaay too confusing.

    Kindergartners need to be concentrating on learning the basic skills they will be needing for the rest of their academic life (e.G. Study habits, literacy skills, how to use a computer). Many kindergartners, especially these days, are already learning two languages at once because their parents come from another country. Schools should wait until the kids have gotten settled (at least 4th grade) before they lay on the pressure of having to learn an entire new language.

  • Later in life

    Children who learn languages beginning at an early age score on average, 150 points higher on the writing portion of the SAT, 140 points higher on the math, and 140 points higher on the reading section. It is extremely beneficial because children are able to retain more information at an early age.

  • Best time for learning. Best time for learning

    Childrens' brains are at a stage in kindergarten where they are most suitable to pick up new sounds, & any information that has a pattern involved. Especially if taught using mainly games and phonics to start with then they will find that language much easier to pick later down the track.

  • Well why not?

    There are so many benefits that come with learning a second language. It can prolong your life and increase your intelligence. A lot of other countries have students learning multiple languages so why shouldn't America join? There are foreigners who understand English better than Americans do and can apply it properly. I have friends in other countries (Switzerland, Germany, and Austria) who knew 4 languages by the time they graduated high school and were completely fluent in at least one of those languages. America needs to quit slacking when it comes to education and catch up with the rest of the world.
