Ablekids, which is now based in Inverness, Scotland was established as an independent bookseller in 2005 with the aim of encouraging parents to introduce their children to more than one language. Ablekids motto is 'Kids Can', if only they are given the opportunity. It is widely accepted nowadays that the 'window of opportunity' for language learning lies between 0-12 years. Younger children have fewer inhibitions about trying words and phrases in other languages and learning another language is known to boost their brainpower. Moreover, being bilingual in this time of globalisation is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity.
