No. Learning more than one language can be good for a child’s overall language and learning abilities in school. A child raised with more than one language will possibly:
- Develop a larger vocabulary
- Have a better understanding of how words sound and rhyme. This will help them when learning to write and spell
- Have access to more than one culture
- Research shows children who are strongly proficient in their first language will become strongly proficient in English. They will also do better in reading.
