Why Teach my Child a Foreign Language?
For children, learning a new language in the context of a story is such a powerful learning tool, because they can use the images and the characters and the plot to help them remember words and phrases. And even simple foreign words and phrases can give a child a completely new perspective and open their eyes to entirely new ways of seeing the world. So help your child to learn something completely new with this book, 'Bosley Sees the World'. Every day our planet becomes an increasingly closer community and introducing our children to a foreign language while they’re young will help them bridge the gap to global opportunities in the future.
