I started to learn English in Grade five in primary school, which seemed a little early in that time. But now, the situation is completely different. As the deepening of globalization, people pay increasingly attention to foreign language learning. But many parents do not know when is the best time to study a foreign language. Recently, many educational organizations say publicly that children should study a foreign language in a early age. However, from my point of view, it's good for children to study a foreign language, but it should not be too early. 

我小学五年级就开始学习英语,这在当时算有点早的,但是现在情况完全不同了,随着全球化的加深,人们越来越关注外语的学习。但是,很多家长并不知道什么时候是学习外语的最佳时期。近来,有很多教育机构公开指出,孩子应该较早开始学外语。但我认为,早学习外语对孩子固然好,但不能过早开始。

Firstly, children should first study well our mother language. It's not so easy for them to learn Chinese,because Chinese have both Chinese Characters and pinyin. Pinyin have the same letters with English, which would make children confused and make the study more difficult. Secondly, children should have more time to play rahter than study. If they study a foreign language in an early age, they would be bored and inimical which may do harm to their learning and growth. 

首先,孩子应该先学好母语。汉语对孩子来说并不容易,因为汉语既有字形要学,又有拼音要学。拼音跟英文字母有相似之处,容易使孩子混淆,这加深了学习难度。其次,孩子应该有更多时间玩耍,而不是学习。如果较早开始学习外语,容易感到厌倦和反感,这不利于他们的学习和成长。

From the discussions above, it's not so good for children to study a foreign languge too early. Language learning is important but not everyone has the gift to study a foreign language well. Therefore, when to start to study a foreign languge depends on children's interest.

从以上讨论来看,孩子不适合太早开始外语学习。外语很重要,但不是很个人都有学习天赋,因此什么时候开始外语学习,要看孩子的兴趣。
