Loving, singing, snuggling, and living with your child in an environment with multiple languages affects the learning trajectory of your child in a positive way. Benefits include reductions in occurrences of Alzheimer’s later in life to increased executive functioning skills, demonstrating advantages as young as 2 years old. How do you introduce a language to your child? Many families choose the one parent, one language approach, in which each parent uses a different language with the child. Some families choose to speak the minority language in the home and the majority language mostly in public. Others can only offer basic language from high school or college language classes.
