How to help your child learn English with YouTube videos
Tracey Chapelton, education consultant and materials writer, has some advice for parents of young English learners, whose home language might not be English. To learn a language we need a lot of exposure to it. YouTube is beneficial if you are not a fluent English speaker, and want a more fluent model of English for your child. Helped along by the visuals of their favourite cartoon, children can watch their favourite characters involved in adventures, while absorbing the language. Repetition is also important for language learning. It helps us remember important words and expressions. The more they watch, the more they will understand, eventually using the language themselves. Where to start? There are lots of great cartoons and songs available on YouTube for young children. Start by watching your child’s favourite programme on YouTube, but in English. The language is designed for children who may be hearing English for the first time. Show interest while watching We’ve got a beach ball too!
