Tips to Help Children Confidently Communicate in English from Age 4

Teaching young children English is becoming increasingly popular among Vietnamese families. Some believe that focusing on Vietnamese first is more important than starting English too early. However, exposing children to a foreign language in the right way can help them master their native language while also confidently communicating in English from a young age. Let's explore the tips with YAHO! Tutors.

Benefits of Learning English Early

Language Development

Numerous studies have shown that children can learn a second language more naturally and easily than adults. According to Patricia Kuhl, a linguistics expert at the University of Washington, children are exceptionally good at distinguishing and learning the sounds of a new language between the ages of 0-7. Early exposure to English helps children develop better listening and pronunciation skills.

A common concern among Vietnamese parents is whether learning English early might affect their child's ability to master Vietnamese. According to linguistics experts, children can simultaneously learn two languages without difficulty in developing both. Research by the Canadian Institute of Linguistics indicates that bilingual learning does not hinder the development of the mother tongue and even benefits children's cognitive and language processing skills.

Cognitive Development

Learning English not only helps children develop language skills but also stimulates logical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving abilities. Research by Ellen Bialystok, a psychologist at York University, shows that bilingual children can focus better and switch between tasks more effectively. This makes them more flexible and sharp in both learning and life. Additionally, children gain a deeper understanding of the culture and language of both countries, broadening their global perspective.

Confident Communication

Being able to confidently communicate in English is a crucial skill in today's globalized world. When children are confident in using English, they can easily make friends, participate in international activities, and have more educational and career opportunities in the future. Good communication skills also enhance their overall social confidence, helping them develop better interpersonal skills.

Tips to Help Children Confidently Communicate in English

Positive Learning Environment

A positive and engaging learning environment encourages children to learn English naturally and comfortably. Parents can create this environment by using both Vietnamese and English flexibly in daily activities such as reading books, going to the supermarket, singing nursery rhymes, and watching cartoons together.

Learning Through Play and Activities

Children learn best when they are engaged in playful activities. Language games, physical activities, and creative exercises not only help children learn vocabulary and sentence structures but also make learning fun and enjoyable.

Encouraging Real-Life Communication

Regularly encouraging children to communicate in English in real-life situations is an effective way to improve their communication skills. Parents can create practical scenarios at home for this purpose.

For busy parents who don't have much time to practice language through various situations, enrolling children in English clubs, group activities, or one-on-one tutor sessions at home, like those offered by YAHO!, can be a great alternative.
