Washington DC (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
For the fourth consecutive year, Washington Family Magazine has named Language Stars, the national leader in early childhood foreign language education with locations throughout the metro DC area, “Best Foreign Language Instruction” in their annual readers poll. “Best for Families” surveys thousands of residents and provides their top picks in food, fun, activities and more.
“We’re thrilled to be voted once again as the best foreign language instruction by families in the DC area,” said Jamie Davidson, CEO of Language Stars. “Our focus is to provide the best language education for children in a full-immersion, play-based environment, and we would not be where we are today without the support of the families who voted. We know that they believe in our approach to teaching their children and are seeing results of providing them with exposure to a second language at a young age.”
The younger the child, the easier it is to learn a foreign language, because you’re tapping into the window of opportunity when a child’s brain is hardwired to learn any language naturally and easily. Studies have shown that knowing a foreign language carries lifelong benefits for children in all areas, from their socialization to their use of critical thinking skills. Investing in early language learning brings greater cultural appreciation, an ability to learn additional languages more easily and a competitive edge in future job markets in the global marketplace.
