Among the many proven benefits of bilingualism, research has shown that bilingual children tend to be more creative thinkers as bilingualism shapes the brain capability to think outside the box. Brain functions stay sharper as they age. Bilingualism has a positive effect on intellectual growth and enhances a child’s mental development. In addition, bilingual children are predisposed to enjoy better cognitive skills. At school, children speaking another language perform better in academic tests. Their brain is kept active, alert and sharp to strike a balance when handling different tasks.
Bilingual Bebe is an online bilingual school providing children more than just language classes. Our virtual programs are designed to engage preschool and elementary school-aged children through fun and interactive lessons and activities. Your child will enjoy many of the same experiences they would have in an in-person school setting. They’ll get introduced to the culture, to reading and writing all while learning the language. Your child is part of a class with a dedicated teacher and other children their age and ability, where they will interact and engage with one another. Our teachers are certified experts with a minimum of 2 years of experience as a teacher.

At Bilingual Bebe, we understand that being a parent is a full-time job and we do everything to make it easy for you.
