Learning a foreign language is a new trend followed nowadays. It is believed that learning a foreign language at primary school is better rather than at secondary school. In this essay we will examine both the benefits and drawbacks of this issue.
Firstly, this is a fact that children who are approximately between five to ten years have the capacity to remember things twice as fast. For example: when my brother was in the third grade, he used to memorise new words quickly. However, now he cannot even learn many new phrases. Secondly, studying a foreign language is very helpful because students get to understand the lifestyle and different culture of the country. English is an international language on which over many people are communicating hence, being able to learn a second language will give a competitive advantages for children.
Learning a Foreign language at primary school could have some possible disadvantages. Firstly, children may get confused because of learning so many languages at the same time and this could have some bad impact on their development. For example: It is claimed that Bilingual children develop the ability to talk more slowly than Monolingual Children. Secondly, it could be a waste of time since children also needs (need) to focus on other subjects like Evs, Mathematics and their own Mother tongue which they might need than a foreign one .
In Conclusion, the benefits of learning a foreign language in primary school apparently outweigh the drawbacks. I believe learning English at a early age is more Favorable in terms of Adaptable and flexible nature of children.
