Have you ever encountered any school or research that has been successful with exposing Early Years EAL students to more than 2 languages?

How can I edit this post with the phone? It came as bold type and that was not my intention.

My question above is because our school is going to implement the exposure to Dutch and French to EY classes, apart from most of our children being EAL/ESL students. I was told there is research saying this is fine, but I don’t find anything and I have my doubts.

I've sorted it for you (I cut it out and repasted it as plain text - not sure why 'bold' wasn't working properly) :)

i'll have to go and have a look and see if i've got anything written BUT I will say that as a group who have many languages spoken my feeling is that as long as a child  can speak one language well then they are able to pick up another ...or more! it is not unusual for us to have children who speak 3 languages (I have one who speaks English French and Chinese (sorry can't remember which dialect at the mo! ) . These children are often at different confidence levels for each but even during conversations my lot pick up new words from other languages!  we also use and teach Makaton which the children pick up quickly which can also be classed as another language.
