Which age is the most applicable?

As young as four months old. You probably would be asking isn’t four months old too young for your children to learn things. “Will my child knows what he/she is looking at?” “Will my child understands what he/she is listening and actually speak it?” “Will my child’s brain being burdened to remember so many things?” Below are some of the facts that can answer all your worries:

“Will my child knows what he/she is looking at?”

When your child is born, he/she sees things in black and white and shades of gray as his/hers visual distance is between eight to twelve inches. By eight to twelve weeks, he/she start to follow people or moving objects with his/hers eyes.

By two to four months, your child starts to move his/hers eyes independently with much less head movement. Like adults, he/she is also able to see everything around him/her. However, he/she does not have very good control of his/hers ciliary muscles and thus, are not able to focus correctly. By four to five months, the crossed-eyes should stop. Most important, his/hers visual systems have developed the ability to see in full color, and he/she is exposed to an exciting new world! He/she is able to focus and learn to look quickly as well as accurately between near and far distances.

“Will my child understands what he/she is listening and actually speak it?”

Our brain shapes and reshapes itself in ways on how we use it as well as how often we use it. Learning language is a nice example of how our brain develops. A child learns to speak language is depending on the language he/she experiences, and the brain will adapt to this specific language.

When your child are at the age of 3 months old, his/hers brain can distinguish several hundred different spoken sounds. As your child getting older, the brain will categorize itself more efficiently so that it only remembers languages he/she regularly hear. Young children typically learn new languages easily and without an accent. After about age 10, however, this brain’s ability is greatly diminished. Therefore, most teenagers and adults find it difficult to learn to speak a foreign language.

The major advantage of letting your child to learn languages at young age is that it can determine how proficient your child becomes in his/hers native language. Just by listening to the television or to adults talking amongst themselves won’t develop your child’s language skills. He/she should interact directly with people, to hear people talking about what he/she is seeing and experiencing, in order for him/her to develop optimal language skills. Unfortunately, most parents are misinterpreted that talking to babies is not very important because he/she is too young to understand what is being said.

“Will my child’s brain being burdened to remember so many things?”

Researchers call the first five to six years of life as “critical periods”, “prime times” or “windows of opportunity” for developing brain.
