"Most children can learn more than one language. The number of people in the United States who are bilingual keeps growing. Being bilingual has advantages, including being better at:
Learning new words
Learning reading skills
Being able to use information in new ways
Putting words into categories, like "food" or "toys"
Coming up with solutions to problems
Listening to others
Connecting with others
Children With Speech and Language Problems
Some children have speech or language problems. If a bilingual child does, the problems will show up in both languages. However, learning another language does not cause speech or language problems or make them worse. Talk with a speech-language pathologist, or SLP, if you worry about your child's language skills."
