English Vocabulary Builder
English vocabulary is one of the most important things your child will need to focus on when becoming a fluent English speaker. Knowing the grammar and perfecting their phonics is undoubtedly important, but without the vocabulary, you won’t get very far.
We want to help you expand your child’s English vocabulary while making it easy to teach them new sentences and grammar. Vocabulary is a fun thing to learn for children because it is something they can inherently understand from just one look. It lends itself to playing, drawing, and reading about. As well, teaching them about animal names in English can become a vehicle through which you teach them about grammar and sentence structures that they will need to succeed.
To successfully teach your children English at home, we would recommend that you focus on teaching your children in a systematic way. You can take a look at our posts on how to learn vocabulary and scaffolding to get a sense of what we are talking about. It might be a long journey, but making a plan will help you get your child to English fluency as quickly as possible.
