Research published in the journal Cognition revealed that the best age to learn a language is before the age of 10. However, numerous studies categorically reject the idea that you cannot reach a native level in a language if you learn it as an adult.
In fact, Professor Marilyn Vikman, from the Department of Language and Linguistic Science at New York University, recalls that there are even cases of people who learned a language in their adulthood with such a capacity for the pronunciation that they were able to pass themselves off as spies.
But does the average person really aspire to speak a new language natively? With the correct methodology, an adult can communicate in another language correctly and without errors, regardless of a time in life when the rate of learning is higher.
Advantages of learning a language as an adult
On the other hand, learning a language as an adult is something that brings enormous benefits to the brain. The main ones have to do with synaptic connections and with the stimulation of areas of the mind that have not been activated for a long time.
That makes people who are learning new languages after the age of 30 less prone to senile dementia later on.
The correct methodology
Among the many options for learning languages at any age, those of the Lingua Language Center stand out, an institution based in several of the most fascinating cities in Florida with more than 20 years of experience teaching languages such as English, Spanish, French, Italian, or Portuguese.
With expert teachers and linguists in each of the languages taught, Lingua is one of the strongest language schools in the Everglades State, but also has its own proprietary methodology, EnterTraining℠ , which combines the best of practices with entertainment.
EnterTraining℠ uses each of the five senses so that the language is captured by the student, which makes the processing of knowledge more effective.
