Online Spoken English for School students Batch 5 - June 2020
With educational patterns changing rapidly around the world and the world being accessible at few clicks through Online learning mode, speaking English plays a significant role in student’s life today. Where the student picks up language skills at home through nurture and nature, English language takes up an alien outlook for many non-native speaker parents. After Mandarin and Spanish, English is the 3rd official and most spoken language in the world. Hence, it gains importance and urgency to be proficient in this language.
As far as educational systems are concerned, a child may still pick up writing and comprehension skills in this language through his academics. However, his speaking and responding skills take a backseat due to the peer pressure, mother tongue influence, culture and environment in which he is brought up and other social influences. Till the child graduates to his secondary section, his academics take up a lion’s share in his day and ‘speaking English’ fluently and confidently becomes a luxury. As per the four stages of Cognitive development in a child, age group of 7 – 11 are the years where a child begins to understand thoughts, feelings and get more aware of external events. A right time to kickstart multiple skills exposure to influence the child’s cognition and grey matter. From age 11, they start planning for their future and may realise that global opportunities await wherein, he needs highly developed language competencies.
In these formative years, a child develops his cognitive, social, physical, emotional, creative, speech and language skills. If he gets the right exposure to English language during this age, he cultivates ‘valuable skills’ to interact, respond, assert and negate in far refined ways in this language. As much as the educators and academicians help children to learn key skills during this age, it is parents and caregivers to primarily develop a sense of good learning, love and acceptance of this language in their children.
Will they go distant from their roots, culture or their traditional language? Not at all. Science proves that a child can gain conversational fluency in three languages simultaneously. In fact, it can create and open several competitive opportunities for a child who is stepping onto his academic ladder year on year. With cross-border deputation projects on rise, children get into a nomadic culture and explore international schooling opportunities where Learning English takes an ‘essential status’ in early childhood.
