I think that provided a child receives a childhood as well as education, then an early start would be beneficial.
When people reach an age around puberty, the brain is going through a phase of lateralisation, after which the ability to acquire native-like competence in speaking may reduce. Besides, a child can acquire multiple languages and become a polyglot. I think the important step is to get the language's sound and spelling systems in place early, so that it becomes internalised by the learner.

Parents need to remember that their growing child needs to grow socially and be allowed to play. Having a child in a classroom for most of the day is perhaps not the best environment to allow for childhood development.

Yes, the earlier the better. But I think if one is interested in it, it's more earlier.

Play is childrens work.

I was brought to Beijing to teach fallacy rejection, and also, corrected logic for double speed computers. I wasn't brought here to play. I was proven innocent in 2012 the first time, I work days per day without interest in sick, bile-provoking genital obsession, mugging, greed, or lies from any sick people that don't know how to think thus have low scores on language proficiency tests.
