Bilingualism in young children: the path to otherness

by  Françoise Zurbach, head of school at EIFA International School – London  / Posted on

When we established our school in 2013, we decided to welcome children from the age of 21 months in response to a high demand and, more importantly, because it aligned with our pedagogical choice to expose our pupils to two languages from an early age.

Our experience with toddlers reinforced the idea that exposure to multiple languages promotes cognitive listening, social interactions and adaptive skills in young children. In fact, we plan to extend the ages to even younger children, from six to 12 months old.
