It is very important to avoid mistakes in English learning. What are the mistakes of English learning from young to young?
1: One sided concern about vocabulary
When many parents enroll their children in English classes, they ask them how many words they can learn at the very beginning, placing too much emphasis on vocabulary. In fact, in the process of the interview, teachers pay more attention to the children's language expression ability. Many children know a lot about a single word, but they can't speak in the real scene, which is obviously not good.
The key to early English learning is language enlightenment, that is, the cultivation of language sense and situational correspondence ability. Language sense, that is, the ability to hear and distinguish sounds. English intonation and rhythm are very different from Chinese. For children who have just come into contact with English, knowing and perceiving the rhythm of English is the basis for the whole listening and speaking in the future. It is recommended that parents start with some English nursery rhymes
The second ability of language enlightenment is the ability to correspond to situations, that is, children can integrate their existing English information and output language according to language scenes. It is recommended that parents should start with simple English cartoons and graded reading to develop their children's learning ability in this context.
2: Overemphasize spelling correctness
Some parents often ask teachers to strengthen the practice of word dictation, thinking that this can promote reading. However, requiring children to recite words mechanically too early will not only fail to achieve the purpose of improving reading, but also easily make children lose interest in learning English too early. Step by step is the more effective way to achieve autonomous reading.
3: Focus only on grammar details
Paying too much attention to grammar and details without encouraging English writing from the perspective of English sentence structure is easy to stifle the creativity of children at the beginning of writing expression.
As a learner of non-native English speaking countries, it is necessary to pay attention to grammar. But we can also learn from the foundation of how British and American children begin to write in English.
Usually, foreign teachers pay more attention to the study of part of speech and sentence structure. For example, verbs are often first introduced to children because they symbolize actions and also have a variety of tenses. Then, nouns, articles, prepositions, etc. are introduced to make children familiar with these parts of speech. As for the sentence structure, some small exercises can be used to strengthen the children.
