Red Apple at Balwyn has employed a new qualified Chinese teacher to teach our kinder and pre kinder children Chinese every Friday.
We understand the benefits for young children that learning another language can have on their development.
1. Children who study a foreign language show higher cognitive performance in overall basic skills in school
2. Children who learn a foreign language at a young age also exhibit better problem solving skills, enhanced spatial relations and heightened creativity.
3. Learning a second language early on encourages flexible thinking and communication skills, helping children consider issues from more than one perspective.
4. The young brain is inherently flexible, uniquely hard wired to acquire language naturally.
