LEARN ENGLISH LIKE A KID
When your kids start learning a language at school, they progress very fast; they are quick learners and as time goes by they learn a lot of new words and structures successfully. On the other hand, you, as an adult parent, are still struggling with the process and suppose that you are not progressing at all. To ignore such feeling, here are some tips which can facilitate your learning process.
Do not worry about your age
Some language experts believe that learning a new language becomes more difficult as you get older. This is not totally true. You can start learning a new language at any age. It is always possible to learn a language so nobody should be able to discourage you.
Feel comfortable with your accent
As you get older. You may not be able to have the same accent as the native speakers. This might seem discouraging for you. All you should remember is if you use the grammar rules correctly and your pronunciation is right, you do not have to be worried about your accent. Also, when your accent is different from others, they might be interested in asking about your nationality and this would start a conversation, so this is an advantage of having your special accent.
Think and do like a kid
When kids start to learn a new language, they just start talking and try to convey what they think and do not pay attention to their mistakes. To feel much easier while learning, you should also do what kids do. Start talking and be sure that others will not judge you. They will encourage your attempts instead. Kids also use the internet a lot. They play language-related games and take online classes. You can also take part in these classes and meet people who are willing to learn English.
Practice as much as you can
To improve your speaking skill, all you have to do is speak. Kids speak a lot, they can quickly find friends and bring up any subjects that they love. This is why they start speaking faster. You should do as your kid; without any hesitations talk about what you wish for. Then you will notice how fast your speaking will be improved.
