ENGLISH FOR KIDS! :D
The main idea of this space is to provide teacher with useful tools for teaching kids. Tools that engage little children in learning English.
'Language learning is hard work ... Effort is required at every moment and must be maintained over a long period of time. Games help and encourage many learners to sustain their interest and work.'
'Games also help the teacher to create contexts in which the language is useful and meaningful. The learners
to take part and in order to do so must understand what others are saying or have written, and they must speak or write in order to express their own point of view or give information.'
When teaching English as a second language, whether to children or adults, you have to be very creative in ways to keep their interests. Since the best way to learn a second or foreign language is total immersion, even if you do know the native language of the country where you are teaching, you will still want to minimize its use. So what is left are different tools to teach conversation, vocabulary, English grammar, and concepts. Using music and song is one of the tools you can use to teach English to your class, regardless of the age of the learner. Music is a tie that binds all cultures and languages and therefore, one of the best ways to make learning English fun.

As technology develops, written materials tend to get ever less popular for learning foreign languages. People seem to no longer find pleasure in reading books. The art of applying the new technology to practical language learning problems is very well demonstrated here with rewarding and motivating results.
As teachers agree, both songs and videos play an important part in teaching and learning a foreign language, as they employ real-life situations with real-life expressions and other particularities. The main difference between songs and videos is that in the latter, there is another sense involved: that of seeing. However, simply watching TV does not account for too good a means to teach English, because it’s all there, the pictures, the characters, the script, leaving very little left for our imagination.
