Which Language Should Your Child Learn? (Quiz!) 


Curious about the best language for your child to learn? Take our fun quiz to discover the perfect fit among French, Spanish, English, Korean, Chinese, or Arabic – the languages we teach at LingoCircle!

Not only will this quiz help you pick the right language, but it’ll also guide you in choosing the perfect class type (e.g., full immersion, complete beginner classes) that suits your child’s learning preferences and goals.

At the end, we’ll also provide information on how you can enroll your child in a free online language class for kids.

Let’s begin! 

Which Language Quiz Questions 

The following questions will help you understand your child’s language learning preferences, needs, and potential challenges. 

1. What is your child’s native language?

  1. English
  2. French
  3. Spanish
  4. Chinese
  5. Korean
  6. Arabic

If your child’s native language is not officially taught or spoken in the country where you reside, choosing full immersion or dual language programs in that language could be a strategic decision. 

These programs provide a dedicated environment for strengthening your child’s language skills in the target language, offering consistent exposure and practice. 

Full Immersion ensures an immersive linguistic experience, while dual language programs provide a balanced approach, allowing your child to enhance their proficiency in both their native language and the target language. 

Of course, you might also consider challenging your child with a new foreign language, especially if the native language is widely spoken in your country of residence.

2. Is your child already fluent in more than one language?

  1. Yes, fluent in multiple languages
  2. Yes, fluent in one additional language
  3. No, but exposed to another language
  4. No, monolingual

Multilingual children often develop a heightened sensitivity to language structures and patterns, making the language learning process more intuitive

This advantage becomes particularly beneficial when tackling languages such as Chinese, Korean, or Arabic with complex writing systems, grammar structures, and pronunciation. 

On the other hand, if your child is monolingual in English, starting with languages like Spanish or French may offer a smoother introduction to language learning.

3. How quickly would you like your child to converse with native speakers in the new language?

  1. ASAP – within a month
  2. Moderately – within 2-3 months
  3. Gradually – within 4-6 months
  4. Patiently – within 6-12 months
  5. No rush – over a year

Acknowledging the diverse learning curves of each language can help you and your child set realistic expectations.

Children may achieve some limited conversational skills in French, Spanish, and English after a few months of dedicated study and practice.

In contrast, languages like Korean, Chinese, and Arabic usually require longer timelines to achieve conversational fluency if starting the language as a complete beginner.

4. Is there a cultural connection or interest that might make learning a particular language easier for your child?

  1. Yes, a strong connection
  2. Yes, a moderate connection
  3. Neutral
  4. Not really
  5. Not at all

If there’s a strong connection, such as familial roots, heritage, or a particular cultural interest, choosing a language that aligns with these elements can make the learning experience more engaging and meaningful. 

For example, if your family has a strong connection to French culture or has relatives who speak French, opting for French classes may cultivate a deeper connection and enthusiasm in your child. 

A moderate connection or neutral interest can still provide a valuable foundation for language learning. On the other hand, choosing a language with little to no connection may require additional efforts to spark and maintain interest throughout the learning journey. 

5. How comfortable do you think your child will be with learning new writing systems?

  1. Very comfortable
  2. Comfortable
  3. Neutral
  4. Uncomfortable

English, Spanish, and French have relatively familiar writing systems, creating a smoother transition into reading and writing.

On the other hand, if your child expresses discomfort with learning new writing systems, languages like Korean, Chinese, or Arabic might require additional support and patience.

  2.  No, we primarily communicate in one language at home

7. For which age group is your child seeking language classes?

  1. Preschool (3-5 years old)
  2. Elementary School (6-7 years old)
  3. 8+ years old

8. Is your child currently fluent in the target language, or are they beginners?

  1. Fluent or have basic proficiency
  2. Beginners – starting from scratch

9. Would you prefer language classes that follow a traditional preschool and elementary school curriculum?

  1. Yes, we want classes aligned with traditional educational standards
  2. No, we prefer a more flexible learning approach

10. Would you prefer language lessons for your child to be taught in the target language only or in both the target language and a second language of your choice?
