As we look to start our new bilingual early years curriculum in September we would like to share an interesting article on the benefits of bilingual education. As the article says,
“Bilingual education means different things to different people. Some want access to English and the equal opportunity it provides. Others want to sustain their heritage and utilize bilingual education as a tool to do so. Others are interested in the benefits of bilingualism for cognitive development. Others are interested in the acquisition of a second, third, or fourth language because of the professional opportunities and advantages it will yield. Ultimately, these perspectives share the same goal: to create a multilingual society with greater access to languages and cultures.”
At Le Hérisson School we are delighted to be able to embrace all the benefits a bilingual education has to offer.
