How to Help Teach Your Child English

Being bilingual can help to open up many future opportunities for your child.
By teaching your child a second language at home or by seeking the help of an accredited language course, you can help to develop your child’s listening, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. These are all skills that will benefit your child’s future, both personally and professionally.

Here are three ideas you can try to help teach your child English and encourage a love of language…

Labels

Let’s start with something really simple, but effective…To help children learn the basic English vocabulary, try labelling objects around your home using sticky notes. If your child sees these labels every day and practices saying these words out loud, they’ll be more likely to remember them.

Technology

Take advantage of your child’s tablet or smartphone to help their language learning. There are some excellent interactive and educational programmes available online. This is a great compromise if they enjoy spending time on their smart devices. Online language learning resources are fun and interactive, whilst providing the foundations of English vocabulary and pronunciation.

Summer Courses

An intensive, residential summer course is a brilliant way for children to learn English, especially when that course is in England itself!

Intensive English language summer courses work by fully immersing students in the language. They usually include lots of fun activities and socialising opportunities, along with English lessons, which helps to both relax and focus students.

Our World English Courses provide students with an unforgettable summer experience, balancing learning with leisure and recognising that making friends and gaining confidence go hand-in-hand with the acquisition of language skills. Find out more here.
