It is a good thing for children and parents that children have just come into contact with foreign languages. But some parents are unfamiliar with their children's age and how to learn. What should children pay attention to when learning English? What aspects should parents control their children's learning so that their children can learn and grow healthily and happily? Parents are also hungry and need well-known experts to discuss and study methods. But different people have different opinions, wise people have different opinions, and there is no same answer. We need to start anew. Every child's growth trajectory is different. It receives the influence of environment, family and school, so we can't generalize. Our goal is to learn English for children. Then how can we provide good environment and conditions for our children?
First of all, some parents tell us if the children are about 3 years old, because they are too young, they will learn Chinese and English at the same time, and finally there will be a mixture of Chinese and English. It is difficult for children to learn a language without knowing what language to use.
Language learning should be divided into different situations, each child has individual differences, but generally speaking, children have the potential to learn seven languages. The earlier they learn the language, the better their acceptance. So the fear of confusion is that parents give their children an incorrect guide and let them intentionally translate something.
We should guide children correctly. For example, children aged 1-3 have strong imitative ability. We can also use this point to let children listen to more stories about English, watch more animations about English, and read some pillow stories to children.
Over time, children will unconsciously have an English mode of thinking, eliminating the process of translation.
Some parents listen to English nursery songs for their children from the time they are born, and teach them some words when they play with them. Slowly, I found that children can now speak a few simple English words, but I don't know when to give them the best time to learn systematically.
As I just said, for language learning, besides the sooner the better, parents should guide them correctly. We don't mean how many words we can recite and how many sentence patterns we can write through learning English.
We learn language in order to understand the western culture, history and mode of thinking behind it.
When a child speaks a few simple words, parents can slowly guide the child to read some English articles, so that the child can get the difference between Chinese and Western ways of thinking from the article, rather than the limited thinking problems of the child. The smaller the child is, the less things in his mind, the easier he will have his own independent ideas, which is common among many children nowadays. Deficient.
Therefore, in order to let children learn language systematically, we should better teach them a way of enjoying themselves, such as playing games with children, buying some small cards, marking English on the back, and turning over every time. This can increase children's fun in English, and gradually, let them see some Western animations and understand the way of thinking on that side.
Therefore, parents should take a correct attitude towards the matter of children's English. If your orientation is that your child must learn English words, grammar or sentences, then you should not be too helpful.
If your orientation is to expose children to bilingual environment, help children lay the foundation of English, establish good habits, cultivate good personality, exercise social skills, then children's English must be a good choice!
In fact, what kind of environment do you want to give your child? The inner environment is the child's psychology, and the outer environment is the child's living and learning environment. Change from internal to external. We need to give our children a good environment so that they can grow up healthily.
