According to my point of view, I partly agree with this opinion.
Generally, living abroad is one of the best ways to learn the culture and language. We have to overcome the shocks so that we can become proficient.
by Abrar khan (Sydney) Some experts believe that it is better for children to begin learning a foreign language at primary school rather than secondary school?
On the other side, each country has each education system. To get used to their teaching manner, which is totally different from ours, is more challenging.
People studying abroad often get ‘culture shock’ while they are not accustomed to the new lifestyle and the new way they have to study.
Primary language teaching needs to be standardised, so that secondary schools do not face problems in their intake. In some situations, it would become very stressful to the child when he has to learn three languages i.e. Some researchers have shown from their studies that such children have difficulties in deciding which language to speak and may end up learning nothing, In conclusion, a standardised policy can be adopted at primary schools which can also benefit society culturally and economically.
Young children's grasping power can make these benefits more achievable.However this policy may bring some advantages along with some disadvantages.This essay will further discuss whether extending foreign language study to the primary stages is beneficial and if disadvantages may occur in the later stages.Rarely can we find a native speaker in our hometown.To almost all students, they usually find it difficult with speaking and listening skills.To begin with, a child's mind cannot absorb too many contents at primary school and bombarding him with words from two languages (native and foreign) may lead his mind into a state of confusion.A student studying at Class one for instance, who just started to talk in his mother tongue will face great difficulty in learning a second language.Obviously young children pick up languages much more easily than teenagers.Their brains are programmed to learn their mother tongue which also facilitates learning another language.In worse circumstances, as some researchers have shown from their studies, such children have difficulty in deciding which language to speak and may end up learning nothing.clearly, this child would face no difficulty if he is taught the third language at secondary school.
