Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 3, 2005
Preparing to release their newest children’s bilingual music CD mid-November, the award-winning BOCA BETH Program feels the constant push to provide our young children with a second language. "Parents, educators and administrators know that being bilingual is critical to the success of today's youth. In order to travel successfully in our global society, today's children need to learn a second language," states Beth Butler, creator/owner of the BOCA BETH Program.
The benefits of learning another language early in life (ages birth - ten) are many: bilingual children read sooner, they score higher on standardized tests, and children who receive instruction in two languages in the early years experience advanced cognitive development. Butler explains, "Our young children are like sponges. The optimum time to learn languages is not in middle school. We need to help young children by laying the foundation for later language learning. There are over 41 million Latinos in our country. Spanish is the most requested language program here in the US."
Butler was recently honored with her selection to Who’s Who in Business in the Tampa Bay Area in the Education category. This after being listed as a resource on the US Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition’s web site, traveling the Southeast to help educators learn about the benefits of bilingual education early in a child’s life and sharing the ease of implementing her Spanish and English multi-media products into daily class routines.
Brought to life in late 2002, the BOCA BETH Program now features two engaging DVDs, three upbeat music CDs, bilingual language cards, musical instruments and BOCA the puppet/instructor. Created by a mom and educator, this language program requires no teaching or 2nd language experience. “We provide a fun, easy and affordable way to begin second language learning at birth,” comments Butler.
