NY Summer Camp Shares 5 Incredible Advantages of Learning a Foreign Language, Staten Island, New York

If you’re looking for a way to enrich your child’s educational experience while helping them develop valuable life skills, foreign language lessons are the perfect option. As a leading summer camp with three locations throughout Staten Island, NY, DEA Music and Art grants children the opportunity to learn how to express themselves through other languages, including music, art, and French.

Here, the summer camp staff discusses some compelling advantages of enrolling your child in foreign language lessons:

  • Enhanced Travel: Students visiting countries where their learned second language is spoken will have a much richer — and easier — traveling experience. Communicating effectively will enhance their ability to ask for directions, order meals, and perhaps even make some friends abroad.
  • Improved Cognitive Abilities: The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (actfl.org) cites numerous studies explaining how learning a second tongue enhances students’ cognitive thinking skills. These improved skills even transcend into other subjects, including math.

  • Higher SAT Scores: Students with more foreign language experience tend to score higher on standardized tests, such as the SAT. If your child has their sights set on a specific college, enrolling them in foreign language classes might give them a competitive edge when applying to their top-choice school.
  • Enriched Cultural Learning: When students pick up another language, they may be more inclined to have a positive attitude toward other speakers. A favorable outlook will give students the ability to immerse themselves more fully into learning about other cultures.
  • Better Job Prospects: Employers are becoming increasingly interested in bi or multilingual candidates. If your child continues developing their foreign language skills beyond their education, they could become more sought-after among selective employers.
