I believe that students should learn for the following reasons:
(a) it is easier for students to learn at their early stage of their development,
(b) They can learn their mother lounge at home and in their neighborhood.


At first Grade they are only six. They havent started proper maths, English or science. Why should should they focus on another stage of learning when they are still not understanding there own language and can barely understand why things are as they are. It is better for them to start in 5th or 6th grade when they have quite developed mindsets. In 1st grade in Ethiopia they don't have as many recourse, Technologies or qualified teachers as in America or England. This means the child don't understand. It is like they are in Nursery/kindergarden. They don't understand as much.

Research findings indicate something totally different from what you are claiming. Studies by Harvard University confirm that the creativity, Critical thinking skills, And flexibility of the mind are significantly enhanced if children learn a second language at a younger age. Preschool years, Especially the first three years of life, Are believed to be a vital period in a child"s life. This is when the foundations for attitudes, Thinking, And learning, Among others, Are laid down.
"This means that children have a natural ability to learn, Which is developed during the first 3-4 years of their life. "
Using that ability is much encouraged because, Always according to research, Learning a second language is as easy as learning the first.
It may sound like a huge burden, But, In fact, It"s not.
