Bilingual education is, in my opinion, an advantage for anyone who has the chance to have one. When students learn English in school, they will progress at different speed depending on their age. The younger they are, the faster they will learn. Therefore, if they receive a bilingual education at an early age, they will be able to concentrate on other subjects at school than English. Moreover, if they receive a bilingual education, they may benefit of the English culture as well. Being bilingual is merely getting all the advantages of being Francophone and Anglophone.

It has made a huge difference in my family's life. Jobs, friends, entertainment, literature and it is supposed to make our brains better. There hasn't been a downside so far.
