Why should children interact with English from an early age?
27/10/2021
🤓 According to many pieces of research, interaction with a foreign language from a young age, especially from 2-5 months will assist children in natural learning, standard listening and speaking, developing language capacity, and mind thinking. Let’s IMA reveal some prominent benefits of early interaction with English for children.
1. Standard Listening and Speaking 👂
At this age, children are prone to mimic intonation and phonetics when listening to their teacher or parents. Therefore, providing children with an English environment accompanied by a proper teaching method will build standard listening and speaking skills since children are young, which may become a benefit for them in the future.
2. Mind Development 🧠
A bilingual curriculum will stimulate mind development, including logical thinking, critical thinking, memory enhancement, and coherent thinking. Besides, children can improve their absorbency and are able to deal with large-scale knowledge. Nature Magazine (USA) once had research proving that children with early English interaction possess a higher degree of smartness than the ones without English interaction.
3. Confidence in Communication 🗣
Interaction with English from an early age gradually encourages children to become more confident in communication and more energetic in other activities. Children will be ready for making friends with their surroundings, which shall enhance their opportunities in interacting with other cultures in the future.
💞 As an international kindergarten, IMA always provides the best condition for children to interact and practice English skills naturally through lessons, and daily activities with Montessori Teaching Method.
💞 For instance, in the “Show & Tell” Activity, children are encouraged to stand in front of the class and speak out loud about a daily life topic. This method will improve not only children’s fluency in English but also their confidence in a public presentation.
