At what age should children start to learn a foreign language?
The earlier children learn a foreign language, so much easier language acquisition will be for them. Current studies show children, who did hear a foreign language early in childhood, hold a more correct pronunciation and grammar later on in life.
Until the age of six, the child’s brain is open to language acquisition. During this time, children learn their mother tongue and foreign language incidentally through imitation in everyday life. That is the reason why science suggests an active learning support in early childhood.
By learning languages at an early age the intellectual capacity is expanded, not only in terms of language acquisition, but also the learning and mastering of new skills is supported.
We support children's learning in a natural way. What exactly is meant by this?
From birth onwards children learn to communicate with their environment. They listen and try to imitate the people around them.
With the help of continuous repetitions of new sounds, syllables, first words and in the end first sentences the children make a daily progress.
If the children experience enthusiasm from their parents and members of the family their development is supported and the children are encouraged to continue they natural urge. At the age of two or three the children are able to express themselves in their mother tongue. The language acquisition occurs naturally. Equally when learning a foreign language.

Can my child learn English, although it still does not speak?
Shortly after birth the learning process of children begins, if not earlier. Before they are able to talk, they pick up the sound and melody of language itself, in order to form words themselves later.
From which age should children learn systematically English grammar?
From research we know, that children up to the age of 7 are able to learn easily different languages, when they listen to word and sound of the language. They internalize the grammar which they need for understanding and communication themselves.
During the courses for younger children we do not practice grammar. Similar to the acquisition of the mother tongue grammar is learned through repeated listening and speaking. The emphasis is that children have fun and learn the language naturally, so they are able to communicate in English.
