Foreign language learning is critical for your child.   Children who have studied a second language in a sequential, well-organized program exhibit better developmental advancement:

o        They do significantly better at tasks requiring divergent thinking, problem solving, and figural creativity (Landry, 1974);

o        They score higher on standardized tests in language arts, reading, and math than students not enrolled in foreign language programs (Rafferty, 1986; Garfinkel and Tabor, 1991);

o        They have an improved self-concept and sense of achievement (Masciantonio, 1977).
