When you listen to me, you might think:
“I cannot understand that dude, what’s his accent?”
Listen, English is my second language, I learned it at the age of 10 or 11 and just continued and learned it better because I needed it for business.
Learn a second language to develop your brain
If you learn a second language (this is why my kids learn a second language, English, at the age of 3), you develop different parts on your brain.
There is a lot of science on that- Google it, and you’ll see.
If you learn a second language or a third language new parts in your brain develop regarding creativity, endurance, performance, and speed of thinking and these parts would not develop in the same way otherwise.
So learning a second or third language at an early age is the best thing that you can do for your kids. I don’t care if it’s English or German or Mandarin or Russian, whatever you believe.
Raising your kids bilingual is a major gift to them
The truth is, who knows what the world will be speaking in 20 years? It’s probably not German, maybe not even English.
I don’t know. But if you take that aspect aside and think about all the positive side effects from learning a second language and raising your kids bilingual, then this is this one major advantage.
You give them a brain that they wouldn’t have otherwise.
How’s that for a parental tip, from an entrepreneur?
