Why learning foreign languages?

The European Union is launching the Piccolingo campaign in all Member States. The campaign is aimed in particular at parents, and seeks to raise awareness about the fact that young children who start learning languages at a very early age will, as they grow older, will confidently approach foreign languages and cultures.

Through the Piccolingo campaign, many parents will realise that learning languages before starting school is beneficial because their children will:

  • Find communication easier
  • Learn and memorise through play – good preparation for school
  • Learn to be open-minded
  • Feel at home in any country
  • Increase their chances of finding a job
  • Find foreign cultures alluring rather than threatening
  • Appreciate their own culture
