We all know that English has become a universal language. Many countries have used English as
their second languages, where some others use it as a foreign language. In Indonesia, English has
become a popular language and children were been taught in English at their school.
Teaching English to children is not an easy job, but it also not difficult, if we already know how
to do it. Below are several things you may consider if you want to teach English to children.

1. Know your student
First thing to do before you teach is to know your student. Different child has different character.
Teaching a 3 years old child will be different with teaching a 5 years old child. The younger a
child, the shorter length of attention span he/she has. If you teach 3 years old children, you have
to be aware that they cannot concentrate or sit still more than 10 minutes. That’s why you have
to prepare many activities and it should be interesting for them.

2. No translation
There is tendency for us to translate a word or even a sentence to our students. Especially after
we spoke several sentences and we saw many confused faces in front of us. Well, frankly
speaking, translation is not a good method to teach a language. Once we do translation, they will
think that they don’t have to try to understand the language and they will just wait because they
know that we will translate it anyway.

3. Use a lot of gesture or picture
Instead of translation, it is better for us to use gesture or picture to explain. For example, if we
want to ask our students to sit, we can say “Please, sit down” and act it out.

4. Being cheerful
Cheerfulness is one important thing we need to show to our students. Believe it or not, the
positive energy from our cheerfulness will be transferred to our students.

5. Persevere
Never give up. That’s the key. Always try and look for different methods or way of teaching to
help your students to be able to speak in English. Children have different way of learning and we
need to try as many methods as we can. One size doesn’t fit to all.

English in the lower grades is incorporated into a Language Arts program. The language arts are
listening, speaking, reading and writing. Generally, these language arts skills are learned in the
order listed. However, when teaching students in the lower grades, especially kindergarten,
lessons should provide a great deal of overlap. Teachers should be sure to connect the content of
lessons to the child's prior experience. This technique motivates the learner and ensures
comprehension of the material.

Things You'll Need

       State curriculum standards

            o    1

                 Design activities to help you assess the skill levels of students in the class. You
                 can play word games like word Bingo, have students respond to a story or have
                 them draw or write about an experience. This will give you a sense of the
                 students' skill levels.

            o    2

                 Keep competency goals in mind. Teachers can refer to state language arts
                 curriculum strands for these goals.

            o    3

                 Create readiness activities and enabling skills. Kindergarteners should understand
                 that words in a book correspond to the spoken word; know the letters of the
               alphabet and their sounds; develop a sight word vocabulary; and begin to read
               stories. Be aware that in a classroom there will be a range of skill levels, abilities
               and interests.

           o   4

               Connect language arts activities to prior knowledge. Kindergarteners should bring
               their own experiences to the lesson. For example, if the book is about a new baby,
               ask the students if they have younger siblings at home.

           o   5

               Develop activities that apply language arts skills. Kindergarteners should be
               familiar with books, know that a story has a beginning, a middle and an end,
               predict outcomes and identify sequences.

           o   6

               Use technology and media when possible to prepare students for their world.
               Kindergarteners should also be able to differentiate fantasy from reality.

           o   7

               Kindergarteners should create oral, written and visual text using new vocabulary
               they have learned. They should speak, draw and write about trips, show and tell
               items, and relate experiences they have at home and in school. Some may begin to
               apply language conventions such as capital letters at the beginning of a sentence,
               for the word "I," and for the first letter of their name and the names of their
               friends. Handwriting should become legible.
