I know that it's not necessarily commonly done - even teaching one foreign language isn't as usual at this age as it should be IMO - but is there any reason, educationally, that this should not be done? I believe I read somewhere that as long as the languages are not related languages that it is fine to do this (so you wouldn't have your 6 yo learning Spanish and Italian, but Spanish and Chinese would be fine.)
My Dd wants to learn two languages - one she takes for granted as the whole family studies it, the other is purely her own interest - and I've not been pursuing it much because I didn't want her to get confused. I'd love to let her learn it though, and am just not sure if I need to make her wait. My gut says go for it... just looking for advice, resources, experience.
