Believe it or not, teaching your kids a second language has so many benefits that will not just be an advantage to you as a parent, but also to your kids.  You may think that it may not be worth the while but trust me when I tell you that it will.  Our world is getting smaller and smaller and it all has to do with communication; the ability to communicate in multi languages.  Think of it like this!  Teach them when they are young, as soon as they can speak, and you will be investing wisely in their futures.  They will be able to communicate with so many others outside of their own native language. 
You don’t have to wait until they can read.  No, not at all.  Kids are very good at mimicking and repeating and why not take advantage of this?  If they learn a second language then they can in turn help you to communicate with others outside of your own native language.  It’s much easier than you think.  Having a bilingual kid in your midst is so much fun, a great learning experience, and most of all, an easy way to invest in their future; very cost effective.  I am going to leave you with a very informative reference to follow up on.  Please see below.

        If your significant other speaks a foreign language, consider having him or her speak only in the foreign language to the child, while you speak to them in English. This will quickly help the child understand each language’s … it won’t be long before your child is equally comfortable and proficient in both languages! Good luck!
