English is one of the most spoken languages in India and the world. Thus, it becomes essential
for children to know English from a young age. Parents these days wish to teach their English at
home but are clueless as to where to begin. Teachers at ODM Public School, the best English
medium school in Bhubaneswar curated a list that can help parents teach the language at home
without any fuss or confusion while also making learning fun:
? Playing Games
One of the easiest ways of teaching something new to kids is doing it in the form of
games and making it fun! Flashcards are the easiest way of playing while teaching. You
can use flashcards depending upon the learning stage your child is at Letters, words, or
sentences. You can also use board games and word games.
? Using Stories
Reading bedtime stories and nap stories in English (and later translating in your mother
tongue if your kid doesn’t understand the language as of now) can be both fun and
? Using Movies
Nothing’s better than a good movie! Select any of the animated films or films meant for
children from the long list of movies available and watch on! Later, discuss the storyline
and characters with him or her in English.
? Using Music
Teach your kid English rhymes or music, while also telling them the meaning along with
it. You can also choose to teach your kid to dance with it since that will make it more fun!
? Create a strategy
When you’re clear about what you’re going to teach your kid at which stage, it’ll become
easier for him to grasp things as well. Start by easier things like numbers and colours
and body parts, then move onto animals and food names and adjectives etc.
Teachers at ODM Public School, the best English medium school in Bhubaneswar also use all of
the given techniques while teaching English to children thus ensuring that while learning new
things, children also have fun and do not feel any fatigue or boredom. Children have a really short
attention span and require fun techniques to help them remember everything. Thus, the more
active the medium, the more desired the results would be.
We at ODM believe that learning begins at home and there are no better teachers than parents.
We hope that the tips and tricks shared by us help your tiny tot learn the language quickly!
