>Establishing a routine
Establish a routine for your “English time” at home. It is better to have short, frequent sessions than long, infrequent ones. Fifteen minutes is enough for very young children.
Children learn naturally when they are having fun. Flashcards are a great way to teach and revise vocabulary.
There are many other types of games you can play with your children to help them practice English.
>Using everyday situations
The advantage of teaching English at home is that you can use everyday situations and real objects from around the house to practice the language naturally and in context.
For example: food, clothes, toys, etc....
Younger children love books with bright colors and attractive illustrations. Look at the pictures together and say the words as you point to the pictures.
Songs are a really effective way to learn new words and improve pronunciation, especially songs with actions.
Which words and phrases should I teach first?
Consider your child’s interests and personality when deciding which topics to teach, and let your child help you to choose. You may like to start with some of these topics:
* numbers (1–10; 10–20; 20–100)
* adjectives (e.g. big, small, tall, happy, sad, tired)
* the body
* animals (e.g. pets, farm animals, wild animals)
Most importantly.....HAVE FUN!!
