The Korea Times : Early English Education Boosts Scores: Study

Interesting conclusions in this study. Shows that students who started studying English in elementary school are more successful on standardized tests than those who begin in later years. The conclusions are a little dubious though. The study was done with high school students in 2003 and in 2006. The students who took the test in 2003 had not studied English in elementary school. Those who were tested in 2006 had. The scores in 2006 were higher than those in 2003, but there could be other factors. Otherwise, interesting study.
