Have you thought about enrolling your child to study at an English teaching for kindergarten (สอน ภาษา อังกฤษ เด็ก อนุบาล which is the term in Thai) school? Before choosing a language institution for your children, it is helpful to learn more about how these schools work and understand why it is essential for your child to study English early. Check out today’s post everything you want to know about children’s English schools!

The Second Language In Childhood

It’s no longer new that learning English—or a second language—is essential for a child’s cognitive development from an early age. After all, at any age, studying a second language is an efficient way to exercise memory, understand the world and easily acquire an essential skill for the future. And, during childhood, the benefits are even greater.

In the first years of life, it is easier for us to acquire knowledge and less fear of making mistakes and learning. The linguistic stimuli of this phase, especially from 2 to 6 years of age, are very easily absorbed by the little ones who are in the best moment to form linguistic capacity. That’s why it’s essential to encourage your child to learn a new language.

But to ensure that the time and money invested in educating your children bring results, you need to look for a quality educational institution that guarantees language learning and education that is attractive and fun for the little ones. And, because we understand that the learning needs of children and adults are different, there are schools — or departments within organizations — specifically aimed at teaching children.

A language school or a Chinese language institution (สถาบัน สอน ภาษา จีน which is the term in Thai) for instance with teachers specialized in early childhood education knows how to use the best methodologies for this particular audience, respecting each student’s time, preparing classes with relevant content strategically, keeping the students’ interest, and making the time invested generates a good return. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the qualification of teachers, who, in the case of very young children, need to master the language and know how to teach it and have teaching skills that go beyond courses and diplomas.

What To Consider When Choosing A Language School

Methodology: try to find out what is the teaching methodology used by the school. More than anyone else, you should know which best fits your child’s profile and family ideologies.

Classroom material: try to know each school’s material to understand and anticipate how the periods and content that your child will see throughout the course will be taught. However, it is worth remembering that, as the child progresses, the teaching material and methodology must keep pace with changes.

Teachers: these professionals will instruct your child and monitor their growth and development in the language. So, it’s interesting to get to know them and cultivate good relationships.
