FairyMom Posted November 6, 2012 Share Posted November 6, 2012 Years ago when I was researching ways to homeschool my children, I came upon a study that expressed the merits of Mathematics compared to Foreign Languages before 2nd or 3rd grade... Basically, not to teach foreign language to a child under 8 or 9 if you want to develop the neural pathways towards mathematics or science... wait for foreign languages until at least 2nd grade, but before 5th grade. Does anyone remember a study or article about this? The cobwebs in my brain have taken over and I can't remember where I saw it. Thanks! :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
