The benefits of learning another language are many and because of that, many parents are choosing to raise their children to be bilingual. But what if you don’t speak a second language?
One of the most effective ways to teach your children a second language is to fully immerse them in it by having someone around speaking the language constantly. Having a bilingual nanny that speaks the language you want your child to learn is a great way to experience language immersion. The child will be in their natural environment, which takes some of the pressure off the learning experience and teaching methods and instead, it can become part of the day to day routine.
Talk to your nanny about your desire to have your child learn another language and see if they can integrate the language through culture, music, and play. Kids learn better through hands-on play and if they can have fun while learning the language, they will naturally become more excited about it and pick up words and phrases quicker. A bilingual nanny will often be able to introduce not only the language, but the culture, too. That will give your child the ability to increase their capacity for other people and the world, creating a well-rounded, open minded child. Hiring a bilingual nanny is also a cost-effective decision that will help reduce your cost in private language lessons or tuition!
Hiring a bilingual nanny while your kids are babies is a great way to begin, as babies can start learning different sounds soon after birth. Constant exposure from the very beginning is one of the best ways for your children to become fluent in another language, which is one of the best gifts you can give them! As they grow and mature, they can use this language to interact with people and it can even give them more career opportunities when they are adults! This is something they will be thankful for later down the road.
