Is starting school easier for children who learn a language before English?
from Medical Daily
For a whopping 21 percent of Americans, English isn't the main language spoken at home. In California alone, almost 44 percent of children eligible for primary or secondary school speak something other than the native U.S. tongue in their residence, The Washington Times reported. A new study was just published revealing that when kids learn a native language early, it could give them a leg-up on English and math comprehension once school begins. The research showed that preschoolers who had strong letter and math abilities in Spanish experienced gains in equivalent English skills.
