Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary schools rather than secondary school. Do the advantages of this outweigh the disadvantages?

Some specialists are of the opinion that kids should start learning a foreign
language
at the elementary
school
than when they are in high
school
. In my opinion, the merits of
this
, is more significant than the demerits.
This
essay will highlight both the advantages and the disadvantages. There are two main advantages to learning a foreign
language
early in
life
. The
first
is the ease of learning. At a young age, a juvenile's brain is still developing;
hence
the youngster is able to learn languages faster as opposed to learning later. The
second
advantage is more opportunities. The earlier a juvenile start learning a non-native
language
; the earlier they will start enjoying the benefits that comes with it and get more opportunities in
life
.
For instance
, a friend of mine who learnt French in elementary
school
had the opportunity to go on a sponsored trip to France meant for institute pupils only, while people who learnt
this
language
later in
life
missed
this
opportunity. There are two main disadvantages to learn a foreign speech in during the early stage of a juvenile's
life
. The
first
is poor communication. Most time, the foreign
language
being learnt is not the main
language
of communication used with the child, resulting in learning multiple languages at the same time;
consequently
, the child might end up mixing up languages in a sentence leading to bad communication.
For instance
, when my sister was 3 years, she was learning Yoruba, English and French in
school
. Sometimes, she said vocabularies from these three languages in a sentence, resulting in mis-communication, which continued until she stopped learning one of the three languages.
Furthermore
, another disadvantage is jammed curriculum. The learning of a non-native speech might lead to the
school
’s curriculum of a child to be too tight
such
that the kid will be unable to engage in other activities
such
as afternoon siesta, game playing which is relevant as well. In conclusion, some specialists believe that children are better off learning a non-native vocabulary while in primary
school
than in high academy.
