It depends on each individual. The sooner a child is introduced to the language, the better. Some of the kids are like “sponges” and pick a large amount of English words during the first month. For others, it takes longer to absorb foreign languages. It is not necessarily a language issue, but rather the overall adaptation of the child to the preschool environment (new schedule, new kids…). Virtually, children can easily learn to understand the language, but the spoken language is more complicated for them. The child begins repeating the words first, then combines them into sentences and by the age of 5-6 the child is capable of complex communication in English. Each child, however, is different and learns at a different pace, but a positive attitude and pleasant family atmosphere in our preschool help the children learn quickly.
