How young children learn English as another language
But where such enviable talent creates an aura of mystique , it also inevitably arouses curiosity. That shows humility, but not so much that Buttigieg and his camp definitively dismiss the polyglot rumours. This is not to deride Mayor Buttigieg. Buttigieg is clearly fascinated by languages, willing to learn, and is brave enough to practice with native speakers on television — qualities that would have made him the star of my classroom.

A child who is exposed to multiple languages at a young age has a much easier time processing and remembering the information they receive, but why is this? And why do we lose this ability as we grow older? I often ask myself this question because I am in the middle of learning a new language myself Spanish and I find it very difficult at times. Adults and older children, on the other hand, have to consciously learn the information which makes it harder because when we learn that way, information sometimes gets lost or disassociated. To make this easier to understand, think of it like listening to a song.
