As the second most spoken language in Europe, German is the perfect introduction to learning a new language for kids of all ages. German is officially spoken in six European countries, including Austria, Belgium, Germany, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and Switzerland. German language lessons for young learners are not only highly beneficial for developing your child’s early cognitive skills, but they can also open up many opportunities for them to study, live or work abroad in the future.

A boost for the brain

Research has found that children who learn a second language may be more creative, better at problem-solving, faster learners, and connect easier with different cultures.

Children also find it much easier than adults to learn a second (or third) language because the language center of their brain is still in development.
