FOREIGN LANGUAGES FOR CHILDREN
What's the best way to learn English?
There are lots of ways to learn English, and we learn best when we are interested and having fun. So why not try a variety of the suggestions below?
Choose a topic, for example colours or pet animals.
Learn a few words each time you study English. How many words you choose to learn is up to you! Everyone is different. I would recommend anything from 3 - 10 words, depending on how much time you have or how easily you remember the words. The thing that’s great about learning languages is that there is no right or wrong amount of words you should learn each time you study. It’s whatever you are happy with. I always find it’s easier to learn words in a foreign language if you learn them as a topic as you can then go on to build sentences with these words and your word lists are easier to refer back to. It’s important to keep looking back at the words you have learnt so that you don’t forget them.

Why learn Engish as a foreign language?
English is a very useful language, and many jobs benefit from being able to speak English as a foreign language,
as it is widely spoken throughout the world and is the
first spoken language in England, the USA and Australia. It's also useful to know English if you are planning to go
on holiday to a country where English is spoken.
In addition to the exercises set out in the above books, there are lots of ways of practicing words that are topic based. Why don’t you try the following?:
Create your own poster with the new English words written on it and proudly display it on the fridge or in your room.
Choose some pretty coloured pencils or pens and practice writing the new words in your best hand writing.
Play Guess the word Game by looking choosing a word from the topic, and someone else has to guess what the word is. If you are using Cool Kids Speak English, you could look at the first page for each topic for inspiration about what word to choose / to guess what it is.
Make word cards by cutting up a piece of card into approximately 5 cm x 3 cm rectangles. Ask an adult to be around while using scissors. On one side write the English word, on the other side write the English word. Test yourself on the words by looking at one side of the card, and saying what the word is in the Foreign language.

Once you have learnt some nouns (words for things) you can then learn how to build simple sentences. Learning a language is fun, a bit like putting together the pieces in an amazing jigsaw puzzle and before you know it, you are making something really impressive. Once you can put together you own sentences you can speak English, and that is a good skill to have.
