In order to let children learn authentic English, more and more parents
realize the importance of foreign teachers. What's the role of good foreign
teachers in learning English?
1. Authentic language environment makes children's progress faster
In order for children to master pure American English, they need not only
authentic voice input, but also immerse children in pure English environment to
cultivate their voice, intonation and sense of voice. On the one hand, foreign
teachers have unique language advantages, and standard pronunciation is
irreplaceable for Chinese teachers. And in the daily communication with
children, foreign teachers usually can more sensitive perception of children's
voice tone errors, so as to correct them in time. On the other hand, it creates
a pure English environment for children. In the "immersion" teaching, it
cultivates children's sense of language, so that children can speak English no
longer "jumping words" but "blurting out naturally".
2. American culture shapes children's American thinking
There is an old saying in China that "one side of the soil, one side of the
people" grows up in different cultural backgrounds, and people's thinking modes
are quite different. It is more important to understand their way of thinking
than pure language learning.
3. Experience of American education improves children's comprehensive
Children's cognitive level is limited, and a lot of rigid knowledge
indoctrination not only fails to achieve the goal, but also backfires in many
cases, which makes children lose interest in learning. Foreign teachers who have
received American education since childhood know how to keep an active
atmosphere while letting children learn knowledge and improve their ability. A
good foreign teacher can apply the language to life, and at the same time
cultivate the children's problem-solving ability and teamwork ability.
