Why Your Child Should be Bilingual

Having the ability to speak multiple languages is a skill that can’t be replaced. If you’re an adult language learner, you’ll need to dedicate time, money, and resources to achieve proficiency.

If you’re a child, though, it’s so much easier to acquire new language skills. The younger you are when you learn a new language, the easier it is. You’ll have a skill that will be an asset to you for the rest of your life.

As adults, we may not have the ability to learn new languages as quickly as our children. At the same time, we owe it to the children in our lives to give them the opportunity to at least learn the basics, if not the basic conversational skills of another language.

Bilingual Education in Children

Just like you weren’t formally taught your native language, young children don’t necessarily need to be taught a second or third language if they have regular, consistent exposure to a language in several different situations.

Thankfully, the Roybi Robot can help parents and children out with this. Using artificial intelligence to promote conversational skills in different languages helps young children develop language skills – across different languages!

Beyond the Surface

Every parent wants their child to be successful academically, and being bilingual can certainly be considered an academic achievement. But if we look beyond the potential impressive academic accolades of raising a bilingual child, there can be several social and emotional benefits to raising a bilingual child.

Building Bridges

Language connects all humans, and we’re limited if we only understand one. By raising a bilingual child, you’re preparing your child to communicate with those from different backgrounds, beliefs, and circumstances. When others can feel isolated without someone who understands their language, you’re preparing your child to build bridges across cultures when you raise them to be bilingual.

If you come from a family with an immigrant background, it’s not unusual to have an older family member who may only speak their native language. By introducing your child to the language of your family’s heritage, you’re passing down the value of your heritage, culture, and traditions associated with language.

Creating Opportunity

In a rapidly-expanding global job market, being bilingual is a skill that employers value more than ever. The job market will undoubtedly change in ways we can’t imagine for our children by the time they enter the workforce.

Giving your child the tools and experiences to develop proficiency or even fluency in another language is an investment with an infinite return, especially when it comes to career prospects. Not only will your child have a secure financial future, but they will be using their skills as bilingual adults to reach out to a wider audience.

A Worthy Investment

With the Roybi Robot, your child can develop the conversational skills essential to becoming a productive, bilingual member of society. 

Yes, it’s amazing that your child will reap the cognitive benefits of learning another language. But what’s even more important is that your child will be able to build bridges through language. They’ll be able to communicate with those who need it most. Their bilingual ability will set them apart in the workplace. 

Your child will change the world.
