Multilingual is a combination of two words, multi (many) and lingual (language). Multilingual children speak more than one language. When it comes to giving a child the opportunity to learn more than one language, parents are often confused and have fears like whether their child would get confused between the languages, or could it cause a delay in development. They are afraid that their child won’t catch up to the general requirements of his age-group. But research studies have shown that its all a myth and actually raising a child in a multilingual culture is beneficial to the child. Children who speak more than one languages are smarter and get accustomed to the changes easily. They can improvise their approach spontaneously. Their academic performance is very likely to reach some heights as well. Research says that if a language is exposed in a consistent and orderly manner, the child shall assimilate it promptly. It is advised to expose a child to a new language as early as possible. Although there is no certain limit over the age to learn a new language, studies reveal that it is generally around 7 to 10.
India is a multilingual society, so it becomes necessary to raise our child in a multilingual atmosphere. Children adept in multiple languages are far better than their compatriots and also possess higher cognitive abilities. Therefore, raising a child in such an environment shall work wonders with him/her.
