Hiring a bilingual nanny has a plethora of benefits for you and your child, many parents are deciding to raise their children to be bilingual and hiring a bilingual caregiver can immerse your child into a cultural exchange.
Research has shown one of the most effective ways to have your child learn a second language is to have someone speaking the language constantly around them. Therefore, having a nanny who speaks the target language and immersing your child in a day to day of bilingualism takes the pressure off learning, and instead, it becomes a part of daily life. This means there is less emphasis on actual teaching methods, and more on learning through culture, music, and play. This method is much more enjoyable than sitting in a classroom and learning becomes more natural for your child.
Hiring an International Nanny is also a cost-effective way to teach your child a second language, rather than paying for language lessons you can request your nanny to only speak in their mother tongue to really immerse your child in a second language in a natural environment or to have games, songs, stories dedicated each day to help your child learn their second language.
This learning can start at any age so there is no reason they cannot be immersed in a bilingual exchange from age 0, research shows that children can be bilingual from birth. Young babies can discriminate sounds from just a few weeks old, so if you would like your child to learn another language, you can hire a nanny from birth which International Nanny offers.
One of the greatest gifts you can give your child is a second language as it will make them aware of new and exciting cultures as well as opening doors for them in the future.
