Cognitive Skill Development

“Bilingual children develop the ability to solve problems that contain conflicting or misleading cues at an earlier age, and they can decipher them more quickly than monolinguals. When so doing, they demonstrate an advantage with selective attention and greater executive or inhibitory control. Bilingual students also display greater facility in learning additional languages when compared with monolinguals.”

*Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition

University of Minnesota’s Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition has found that children in language immersion programs benefit in many ways, including the following:

  • When compared with students in other types of language programs, immersion students who begin the program as English speakers consistently develop native-like levels of comprehension, such as listening and reading skills, in their second language.
  • Student in immersion programs perform better on standardized tests.
  • These students test at or above their grade level and match or exceed the achievement of monolingual peers with similar demographic profiles.

A recent Cornell University study indicates that the benefits of learning more than one language are expansive. Among them:

  • Improved problem solving skills, analytical and critical thinking, creativity and flexibility of cognitive functions
  • Expanded cultural knowledge and greater appreciation of other cultures
  • Increased job opportunities in many careers
  • Heightened communication skills
  • Better outcomes in seemingly unrelated academic areas, such as mathematics and logic, compared with monolingual children
  • Earlier development of good interpersonal understanding and social skills

Why Spanish?

Spanish is spoken by an estimated 350 million or more people around the world and is the fourth most commonly spoken language worldwide. In terms of geographical proximity, it makes sense to learn Spanish if you live in the U.S., because it is the language of the vast majority of our neighbors in the Western Hemisphere. Spanish is also a language that can be used frequently at home, as 17 percent of U.S. residents (and growing) are Hispanic.
