“Is earlier really better?” is one of the questions that many people are interested in. Parents want to know if it is a wise decision to have their kids learning English early or they can learn later in life. It turns out that the answer can not be simply yes or no, but must be framed in a large context with many factors and perspectives.
In this talk show, among others in the series called “làm bạn với con” (literally means be your children’s friends), two guest speakers shares their views on the issue. Dr. Ton Quang Cuong is an academic working at the Hanoi National University; Ms. Pham Thi Cuc Ha is the founder and executive director of the English teaching school “JustKids”. Many interesting points came up during the discussion, but be judicious when you adopt (a)views from those speakers. It is also important to note that “science” do not “prove” anything, they do offer insights from what they have learned. Be aware that how they get to know what they know is still limited and questionable.
