Hello, Little Global Citizen!
Learning English with Carousel of Languages
There are so many reasons to introduce your young child to English!
Maybe your family is new to the United States and you want to support your young child’s English acquisition with instruction in a warm, nurturing, immersive environment, tailored to the needs of infants, toddlers, and young schoolchildren. Or perhaps you live abroad and wish to give your child a versatile second language that expands opportunities in education and career. Whatever the motivation, Carousel’s English language programming will enchant your little citizen of the world!
English is the second most widely spoken language in the world–after Chinese–with almost 1.5 billion speakers. That’s 20% of the world’s population. However, slightly less than 400 million are native speakers. What makes English unusual is that close to a billion people speak it as a second language. It’s by far the most studied second language across the globe. English is the official language of 53 countries, and the dominant language in numerous others.
English is one of the 6 official languages of the United Nations, and is also considered the language of international business – many global companies use it as their primary language even where it is not the mother tongue. In the science and technology fields, English is the universal language for conducting and sharing research–it is estimated that 98% of scientific papers published online are in English. English proficiency is vital for anyone considering a career in business or STEM. Knowing English will also give your child access to a diverse and exciting world of literature, theatre, music, television, and film.
The long history of the English language’s growth and spread is complicated. But today, with native and non-native speakers all over the globe, speaking English has undeniable advantages. It can make travel, study, career, even entertainment easier and more fulfilling, for anyone, no matter where you come from.
