Why should I introduce my child to a second language?

Exposure to a second language helps the brain of a young child grow connections that make a new language easy to learn. Studies have also shown that learning a foreign language at an early age has many other hidden advantages:-

Furthermore, with the rapid move towards a global economy in today's world, speaking a foreign language can now be seen as a competitive advantage when entering the job market. Indeed, even in the United Kingdom, the number of jobs requiring a foreign language as a necessary skill is increasing each year, with a growing number of multilingual call centres locating themselves in this country and the realisation within industry that the ability to speak the language of a potential customer provides a distinct trading advantage.
