Early Bilingualism

How early should kids be exposed to two languages? The earlier, the better. Babies have the ability to produce all kinds of sounds. Little by little, as they listen to their parents, they focus on the sounds they hear and don't develop the ability to produce certain sounds. Babies hearing two languages develop an agility which enables them to produce whatever sounds may be necessary to communicate in those languages they hear.
