make your children bilingual. it is money well spent

In my opinion it shouldn't be started too early. They are not going to know more at 3 than at 6, only they could be confused... unless if the parents' mother tongues are different, that's the best that can happen to them language-wise. 5 or 6 is a nice time to start learning one language. In my country, when I was a kid, I could start at 6, but nowadays, you can start at 8... and you can start a next language at about 14. It's good, and definitely, as you get older, it's the more difficult to learn a language. I know about myself. I tried to learn French for some time, but it's not going as fast as my learning of English and German (I'm from Hungary).

thats a really good thing to know. but is it really true that bilingual kids have better attention span? i speak 5 languages. but can't focus well in my college. i feel is good to learn chinese- Mandarin, its one of the highest spoken language in the world
