The best time to learn a language is when you are young. In this course children will get a chance to listen to children's stories. They will see pictures about the stories that will give them clues to what the story is about. They will learn new vocabulary that is in the story and will help with comprehension. Students that are from China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam enjoy these stories because they are so different from the stories they read in their countries. When the children are finished listening to the story they will get to draw and color a picture that shows that they comprehended the story. Children like art and coloring with colored pencils and crayons. It is wonderful to see how they express themselves. We will talk about the picture and story as we are doing the art together. I have a degree in art and will guide them through the process. They will not be frustrated because I am helping them. In this lesson the student will need an 8 1/2" piece of white paper. They will also need colored pencils, crayons, markers, a pencil and a black marker. I will provide the rest of the materials. The class will be in American English
When making a request please provide a skype name. Your child will enjoy this lesson and feel successful. They will remember the English for the rest of their lives. Also, any age group can take this class. But for students that are between two and six years old it may be too difficult. I look forward to our first session.
