Wow! Angelina Jolie's Twins Already Speak French!

Thu, September 30, 2010 12:58pm EDT by 3 Comments

They’re only 2 years old but the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s twins, Knox and Vivienne, already know French!

Angelina Jolie‘s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, spoke French, and the actress made a decision with her partner, Brad Pitt, that all of their children should learn French too. But the couple’s youngest kids, 2-year-old twins, Knox and Vivienne, are so advanced that they are already bilingual! “They speak more French than English,” Angie recently said according to Life & Style magazine. “We have a French teacher who’s always with them.” Experts say that learning a second language when you’re under the age of 5 can make you smarter, so Brad and Ange are totally doing the right thing for their kids.

Kids who learn a second language (or a third in the case of Salma Hayek‘s daughter, Valentina), have better communication skills and some studies even suggest that it makes their brains more nimble so that they don’t have to work as hard to solve mathematical problems.

The insider tells Life & Style that the teachers Angie refers to are more like French nannies. “Because the nannies do so much day-to-day care, the twins naturally speak in French. But Angie encourages it,” the insider says. “She’s always been obsessed with the idea that educated people speak French as a second language.”

Does A.J. speak french fluently? The article mentions it but not with respect to her or B.P. Their kids will later talk about them–in *front of their backs* in the same room?
