How to teach English to children?

Do you often ask yourself the question? And as a parent, you want to put the odds on his side to make it happen. It is for this reason that it is necessary to choose the ideal linguistic tool for your child from an early age.

Globalization has made English an essential language to know to evolve in the professional world.

Indeed, despite the discovery of the English language from CP, the French education system in terms of foreign languages remains relatively weak. You are therefore aware that his command of English when he becomes an adult depends partly on you.

Know that your child is a real sponge. From 3 or 4 years old, you can start teaching him the basics of English.

In fact, learning a language is an investment that lasts a lifetime! There are many methods to teach English to children. Their ease and speed in assimilating new words could greatly surprise you.

Scientific and neurological studies have shown that up to the age of 13, children can memorize a second language as if it were their mother tongue. It is therefore recommended to immerse your child in an English-speaking environment as soon as possible.

That said, one of the most important things when deciding to improve your child's knowledge of the English language is choosing the language tool that best suits their needs. You should try to find a stimulating language tool that allows your child to quickly acquire good knowledge, so that they can apply new language skills in everyday life. The best way for your child to obtain such results and become bilingual in English is to go on a language exchange in an English-speaking country.

The interest of language exchange for young people:

Linguistic exchange is of great importance in the training of your child, whether for the personal or professional aspect.

Indeed, it is not only a question of learning a language or of deepening one's linguistic skills. It is also a very enriching experience from which your child benefits.  

A linguistic exchange in immersion in a foreign country is undoubtedly a key factor in deepening one's knowledge of a second language. Moreover, we are not only talking about language learning but also about personality development and open-mindedness.

It is also an opportunity to practice listening in the local language. Listening comprehension being one of the key steps to be taken in the context of learning a language, children and young people are often much more comfortable and confident after having carried out a language exchange during which they learn, little by little, to improve their ability to understand a foreign language.

Living with an English-speaking host family implies the acceptance of cultural differences and customs of the host family, which requires, at the beginning, a period of adaptation.

Your child through this experience will change his perception of things. It will thus improve and will also gain in maturity. This is when a language exchange takes on its full meaning. Not only does the child constantly improve his level of language but grows throughout the stay. At the end of a language exchange, the young person emerges confident and more independent. The discovery of a new culture will allow him to open up to the world.
