Studies have shown that children who are exposed to English or another language before the age of 10 have a better chance of learning to speak without an accent. The developing brain of a child undergoes physiological changes at the onset of adolescence that make it more difficult to distinguish and reproduce many of the sounds of a foreign language.

Consequently, if you expose your child to hearing native-spoken English from an early age, it will be that much easier to teach him to speak like a native. It's also important to start teaching English as a second language early, because young children have an easier time learning languages than adolescents or adults. This is because young children are still using their intrinsic language-learning skills to acquire their first language. They quickly realize they can use these same skills when learning English.
