  • Children’s Spoken English Classes in a New Awesome Way

    If your child practices English speaking with a Native English speaker, your child will get the perfect accent and learn excellent grammar in weeks!

    This is the truth. English is some much easier to learn as a child.

    This is why our 100% Conversational method is so effective for children’s Spoken English classes.

    Childhood is the best time to learn English, especially if you want to get perfect in Pronunciation and Grammar.

    Think of how kids learn English when they move to an English speaking country. 

    They will not learn grammar or vocabulary. They just learn how to speak perfect English naturally.

    One of the keys to teaching English to children is keeping them engaged. While children are often able to learn new languages quickly, they also possess short attention spans.

    If a child is not interested in the material being taught, they are much less likely to learn it.

     

    So what is a awesome way to improve Children’s English speaking fluency.

    The best strategy is to focus on conversation.

    FACT : Children absorb correct grammar and vocabulary naturally when they speak with someone.

    If that someone is a Native English Speaker, the child will learn perfect grammar and absorb the perfect vocabulary.

    That is why our method is 100% conversational.

    You become fluent in English by practice, not memorization.

    What you learn stays with you.

     

    These 30 conversation topics will help teachers engage their  students in Children’s Spoken English Classes.

    1) Favorite vacation – have the child describe the location visited and activities he or she participated in. Many times, these experiences will have taken place in different countries.

    Students can practice using English to express ideas about other cultures. Ask in-depth questions about new food they tried, local customs, and cultural differences. Children are often much more perceptive than they appear.

     

    2) Favorite animal – wild and domestic animals is a favorite conversation topic amongst younger students.

    This conversation starter is a good opportunity to learn how to pronounce the common names of different creatures and practice using descriptive adjectives.

     

    3) Favorite food – this topic helps children describe their favorite foods using words that describe taste and texture.

    The ability to describe in this way will be especially useful when students need to order food or inquire about meals in English.

     

    4) Daily routine – students often follow a similar routine each day. This is an opportunity to learn words describing time and different activities (examples include brushing teeth, bathing, etc.).

    Feel free to expound on the topic by asking what their ideal routine would be or whether they are satisfied with their current one.

     

    5) Future career – this topic provides an opportunity to discuss different professions while also inspiring students to achieve their dreams. If a student does not already have a career goal, help them develop one by exploring different vocations.

    6) Favorite movie or song – these topics help students verbalize culturally relevant words and names. Many popular movies and songs can be found in different countries.

    Proficiency in describing such topics allows a student to find common ground with members of different cultures.

     

    7) Pets – even if students do not have a pet, they are often happy to describe their ideal pet. This topic is similar to the “favorite animal” topic listed above.

    However, children will often describe pets with more endearing terminology.

     

    8) Parents’ occupations – children may not have precise knowledge regarding the careers of their parents.

    However, this serves as an opportunity to learn technical vocabulary that is not normally used in other situations.

    9) Greatest fear – while this topic may seem gloomy, it serves as a bridge into more philosophical language. Children describing their fears will use words and phrases that carry deeper meanings than their usual daily language.

     

    10) Favorite book – like movies and television shows, books are relevant across cultures. Many popular books are translated into a variety of languages and children will be excited to talk about their favorite characters in English.

     

    In addition to these generic conversation starters mentioned, try some of these unconventional questions to provoke discussions for Children’s Spoken English Classes:

    11) What is your favorite day of the week?

    12) If you could invent a new holiday, what would it be?

    13) If someone gave you a large sum of money, what would you do with it?

    14) What is your favorite color and why?

    15) If you could travel to any country, where would you go?

    16) Do you have a favorite restaurant or store?

    17) What is your least favorite chore or job?

    18) Do you enjoy doing your homework? Why or why not?

    19) If you could change one thing about school, what would it be?

    20) Which dessert is your favorite?

    21) How many books do you own? How many are in your home?

    22) How old were you when you learned how to tie your shoes?

    23) Do you share your first name with anyone you know?

    24) What is your favorite joke or story?

    25) Who do you spend the most time speaking to?

    26) What animal are you the most afraid of?

    27) What is the largest number that you have counted to?

    28) What is the longest word that you can spell?

    29) What is your favorite holiday and why?

    30) What would your best possible day look like?

     

    Using the above conversation topics, teachers and parents can help even the shyest students speak English. Any combination of the above questions may be used. The key is to appeal to the student’s interests and maintain a continuous dialogue.

    Speaking a new language is hard, but this difficulty can be mitigated by carefully selecting conversation topics that promote critical thinking on the part of the speaker.

    Feel free to improvise as your students share new information or seem especially interested in particular lines of discussion.

    A combination of these recommended conversation topics and a little intuition will help students begin speaking English in no time.

    How to Improve Children’s Pronunciation?

    Pronunciation is another very important part of our Children’s Spoken English classes.

    Pronunciation is also know as elocution in some parts of the world, specially countries in South Asia and Middle East like India and Saudi Arabia. (These children’s spoken English classes are called elocutions classes in these parts of the world)

    Pronunciation or Elocution training helps a child learn how to develop different sounds of English.

    For example the “th” sound or the “V” sound.

    The reason is children learn pronunciation naturally and will NEVER forget once learn the perfect accent.

    So, Children’s Spoken English classes must invest time on pronunciation/elocution practice.

     

    Tongue Twisters are a great way to improve Pronunciation

    Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy, was he?

    This helps pronouncing the ‘f’ sound, the ‘w’ sound and the ‘zz’ sound.

     

    Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better.

    This helps pronouncing the ‘l’ sound, the ‘w’ sound, the ‘th’ sound and the ‘tt’ sound.

     

    The thirty-three thieves thought that they thrilled the throne throughout Thursday.

    This helps with the pronunciation of the ‘th’ sound.

     

    Betty Batter bought some butter

    But she said the butter’s bitter

    If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter

    But a bit of better butter will make my batter better

    So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

    This helps pronouncing the ‘b’ sound.

     

    There was a fisherman named Fisher

    Who fished for some fish in a fishure.

    Till a fish with a grin,

    Pulled the fisherman in.

    Now they’re fishing the fissure for Fisher.

    This helps with pronouncing the ‘f’ and ‘sh’ sounds.

    Picky people pick Peter Pan Peanut-butter, ‘tis the peanut-butter

    Picky people pick.

    This helps with the ‘p’ sound.

     

    Yellow butter, purple butter, red jam, black bread.

    Spread it thick, say it quick.

    Yellow butter, purple butter, red jam, black bread.

    Spread it thicker, say It quicker!

    Yellow butter, purple butter, red jam, black bread.

    Don’t eat with your mouth full!

    There are many sounds to practice in this longer tongue twister.

     

    Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew.

    While these fleas flew, freezy breeze blew.

    Freezy breeze made these three trees freeze.

    Freezy trees made these trees’ cheese freeze.

    That’s what made these three free fleas sneeze.

    This helps with the pronunciation of the ‘thr’, ‘fl’, ‘fr’, and ‘ch’ sounds.

     

    Bobby Bippy bought a bat.

    Bobby Bippy bought a ball.

    With his bat Bob banged the ball

    Banged it bump against the wall

    But so boldly Bobby banged it

    That he burst his rubber ball

    “Boo!” cried Bobby

    Bad luck ball

    Bad luck Bobby, bad luck ball

    Now to drown his many troubles

    Bobby Bippy’s blowing bubbles.

    This helps pronounce the ‘b’ sound.

     

    As he gobbled the cakes on his plate,

    The greedy ape said as he ate,

    The greener green grapes are,

    The keener keen apes are

    To gobble green grape cakes

    They’re great!

    This helps to practice the pronunciation of the ‘g’ and ‘gr’ sounds.

     

    A tree toad loved a she-toad:

    Who lived up in a tree.

    He was a three toed tree toad.

    But a two-toed toad was she.

    The three-toed tree toad tried to win,

    The two-toed she-toad’s heart,

    For the three-toed toad loved the ground,

    That the two-toed toad trod.

    But the three-toed tree load tried in vain

    He couldn’t please her whim

    From her tree load bower

    With her two-toed power

    The she-toad vetoed him.

    This helps to practice the pronunciation of the ‘g’ and ‘gr’ sounds.
