Learning a second language can open many doors in life. Increased job opportunities, richer traveling experiences, and cognitive benefits are just some of the perks that accompany language learning. Children who grow up in bilingual homes have the advantage of learning multiple languages from birth when language acquisition is the easiest. However, you can learn a new language at any age. The older you get, the harder it becomes to gain fluency in a new language so it’s essential to start studying languages as early as possible.
