Academics must be introduced to children at an early age. Children are gifted with the ability to learn quickly. Children learn most things that influence their character, behaviour, and interests until they are five years old. At this age, children are eager to learn new things, words, and about their environment.
I’m a mother of a three-year-old and nine-month-old child, and I’m delighted to share the methods and tricks I’ve used to develop English-speaking skills for my children.
When to begin is the first and most important question that comes to the mother’s mind. We can begin as early as their first months. Yes! Even if our child does not grasp what you are saying, they will learn to understand the meaning of frequently used words. We can begin with two-word statements such as:
- Please come.
- Sit down.
- Go there.
- Take this.
- Give me.
This gives a child ease of speaking.
1. Magic Potion:
Vocabulary is a magical component of any language. We must let our children learn new terms and words. As a result, we must make it enjoyable. We can choose from the following options:
- Narrating stories in easy language.
- Watching poems or cartoons in English only.
- Using small sentences in day-to-day life with your child.
At the age of three and half years, a kid learns to speak small sentences comprising five words. Rich vocabulary will help your child to express their emotions with ease.
We can begin improving their English speaking skills after he reaches the age of three and a half years. Learning is a lifelong process. To get them on a self-improvement track, small board books and storybooks of their interests can be introduced here.
I want to recommend some of my children’s favourite books to you:
- Greta and the Giants
- Dragons Love Tacos
- Ten Magic Butterflies
- The Scarecrow
- Just Because
Likewise, you can choose books of your child’s interest. Reading books and watching shows of their interest in English would be a great help for the kid.
I hope this article will help you to make it easy for your kid to learn English.
