    The earlier the better. Mine have been speaking spanish since birth. I start teaching the 3 year olds in my class beginning of the year.

    I also think the earlier the better, although our school doesn't offer it for my kids at this age so they aren't learning any new languages. Sad.

    They start French in kindy here. I did too. My nephew started in a french immersion program in kindy and he's been fluent for a couple years now. Here it is a huge plus to be bilingual in both official languages.

    I didn't start until 7th grade and not much of it stuck. My husband's first language is French, so my kids have been exposed to two languages from the beginning. They have learned a lot of core words but are nowhere near bilingual. My 4-year-old is now in a dual language pre-K where they do half the day in English and half in Spanish. She has picked up a ton of Spanish but it has been hard to distinguish French and Spanish for her...she gets confused about which is which. I do think the earlier the better for sure.
