Children have the great ability and potential to learn a foreign language easily as their mother language. The Chinese language is tonal. Unlike English and other non-tonal languages, the brain research discovered that the brain processes the tones of the Mandarin Chinese in the right hemisphere of the brain, before the left side of the brain processes the semantics of the information. Brain functioning differs not only when distinguishing between spoken Chinese and spoken English but also when distinguishing between written Chinese and written English. Fascinating research by US and Chinese scientists shows that readers of Chinese use a different part of their brains to readers of English. Therefore, learning Mandarin Chinese enhances and enriches children’s mental development and has positive effect on their intellectual growth.
