Last week, I and one of my students talked about the right time to study English because he’d read in a book that says it is unnecessary for Japanese elementary school students to learn English at school.

I don’t know if I can agree or disagree about that because I don’t really know about how English is taught in elementary schools in Japan and how students think about it, but I think learning English (or any second language) as a language at an early age is not useless.

Learning a second language can improve confidence, keep the mind sharp and boosts creativity; so I think that a child who has an opportunity to learn a second language should take the opportunity.
