To become companions in learning English with children, parents need to understand and follow some certain rules.

Parents are the people who help children learn English best - that is the view of Dr. Elaine Schneider, the leading expert on the study of child psychology at Nova Southeastern University (the US). However, to become companions in learning English with children, parents need to understand and follow some certain rules. Here is some sharing of Mitchell Willcox. He graduated the English pedagogy of University of Montana, United States. He and Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee wrote two famous books on learning methods for children - Walker, Project Maker and Bruce Lee's YL Activitees.

Silver bullet

In English, the phrase "silver bullet" comes from stories and movies about the werewolf legend. People found a way to deal with this terrifying creature, which is to use bullets made of silver.

All the time, most parent conferences or personal talk with parents of students in Pre-Starters class, they ask me about the solution as this "silver bullet". Parents all want me to give them a "silver" website, a "silver" book or even a magic regimen to help English home practice become simple and easy for their children.

If this thing exists, learning a language is not complicated anymore. Children will be able to learn mainly at home and use language fluently after only a short time. But this is also a myth as a story about werewolves and silver bullets. In fact, learning and using language effectively is a difficult journey.

Before talking about a few methods for parents to help their children practice English at home, parents need to remember four following things: learn and train properly, avoid overloading the exercises on paper, language should not be a fear and used in inappropriate circumstances, practice at home have some limitations compared to classroom hours.

What is active learning and practicing in the right way?

At parent meeting, I heard most of the mothers talked about English learning methods for children. Normally, their children have to wake up early every morning to study grammar, in the evening they do grammar exercises or listen to CD. And then they wonder with that busy schedule, why don't they see the progress of children to communicate in English?

The reason seems obvious: the parents themselves made their children hate English with a too stressful schedule. Giving students a mountain of homework will make learning English a fearsome punishment and totally boring. Inherently, learning a language opens a gate to the world of words, ideas, entertainment, tourism, and education. The mothers force their children to do more exercise because they love their children and wish them success. However, that method is simply counterproductive. If children do not like to speak English, they will never speak it. If they do not speak English, they will never be able to progress.

Why avoid overloading the homework on paper?

Exercises on paper is the passive exercise, it is useful but has a very limited effect. Exercise on paper may help reinforce grammatical structures, one or two exercises can help them memorize grammar. But we cannot really train a language like that way. For example, when you have completed exercises on paper of a new structure, continue to do the same repetitive exercises will virtually have no effect. Because that's when you need to practice these structures in communication, listen to people who use them and use them in writing.

Do not force children to speak English in inappropriate circumstances

Parents often wonder why their children do not speak English with foreigners on the street or in a restaurant and forget that children do not like talking to strangers. Moreover, to children, foreign strangers are even scarier.

Hoping children to communicate in English with strange foreigners is a big pressure and can make children do not like to speak English. Moreover, we will never say something suddenly without reason. Telling children to speak English with foreigners on the street is forcing them use English in inappropriate situation. Inherently, children and foreigners have nothing to say. It would be strange and can make you afraid to communicate.

Home practice has some limitations compared to classroom hours

You are fluent in English and although helping your children practice at home is very helpful but there are also many limitations. In case you cannot communicate in English, the only place to teach your children to learn English is class. Home practice with exercise on paper may increase the learning dynamics and even add vocabulary. However, all of these factors cannot replace the role of professional training courses.
