Chalk Talk: Learning English as a Second Language
Is your child struggling with English? Yet he goes to a public school in the USA where all of his classes are in English and all of her friends speak English as well. Your local school should offer ESL (English as a Second Language) or ELL (English Language Learner) classes, but how can you encourage your child and help them even outside of their classrooms. First of all, you can learn English with them; practice with them, correct each other, watch movies and TV in English and try to summarize what happened in English. Let all of your easy listening music be in English when your child is home. Put sticky notes on objects all over the house defining what they are in English. For example, “Refrigerator” written on a Post-It and stuck to the fridge. Make English learning fun at home. Play games with your child such as “I spy” where you describe, in English, something you see and they have to guess what it is. With this balance of learning and fun, you can help your child progress faster and be more ready for the English classroom.
