When we start learning English, we usually practice basic words like dog, cat, or mom. I think that might be why many children have such difficulties when learning the name of the months in English. Words like November or August are taught early on as basic vocabulary, but they can be very hard to say properly and remember.
To make this easier, we have made a chart that outlines a month’s name in English. If you prefer, there is also a chart that lists the months in English, Hindi, Mandarin, and Spanish. We have also included audio files and YouTube song links so you can teach your child about the months in a fun and efficient way.
If you are interested, we have also put together a Months in English poster, which you can download for free. It can be found near the bottom of our article.

One of the most effective ways to teach children about the months and their names is to use a song. Luckily, there are plenty of sing-alongs on YouTube. Here are two of our favorites.
Months can be a tricky lesson for children, but like anything, with practice, they will be experts in no time. With a mix of games, songs, and revision, you’ll be shocked by how quickly it happens.
