  1. A person born in Russia-from the very cradle he hears the Russian speech, the Russian dialect. Born in another country, that language is easier.

    If from the very birth they will communicate with him in two languages-accordingly, two languages will be deposited in his brain.

    Hence, as a conclusion, it will be easy for him to communicate in these languages both at school and in any other educational institution and at work.

  2. Sorry, I'm not going to answer from the point of view of the brain, but from the point of view of learning theory. It's hard to do something you don't know how to do. Language is a system, and it is necessary to study it systematically, i.e. vocabulary, grammar, reading, listening, speaking, and writing. Language proficiency is not just knowledge of n thousand words, it is the skill of using speech constructions in appropriate speech situations. A skill is an action brought to automatism by repeated repetitions.

  3. The fact is that when a child is very small, there are no formed neural connections in his brain, and language constructions fit into his head quite easily. With age, connections are fixed, unused ones are cut off, and the learning process will no longer be so easy. This is when it comes to the brain.

    And a three-year-old child has a stock of about 700 words. Do you think that if an adult is placed for 3 years in a different language environment, and constantly communicate with him in a new language, he will not be able to master it in the same volume? It can. Because he knows other memorization techniques… It's just that no one pays as much attention to a foreign language in everyday life as a child does. This is the second reason )
