The benefits of studying Cambridge IGCSE Spanish

Studies have shown that speaking a second language, such as Spanish, will help develop your child’s thinking skills. The brains of bilingual people work differently than those who speak just one language. As a result, by taking our Cambridge IGCSE Spanish course, your child can gain some or all of the following:

  • Improved listening skills since the brain has to work harder to distinguish different types of sounds
  • A stronger working memory which will help with mental calculation, reading and other key skills
  • The ability to switch from one task to another more quickly
  • Being better at their first language. It is said that you can never understand one language until you understand at least two

These are all quite apart from the benefits of your child immersing themselves in another culture, and of seeing their own culture from the perspective of another.
