In today’s global and digital-based era, people are required to be able to move quickly so as not to be left behind. One of them is being able to master a foreign language. Over time, English is no longer the main international language. Therefore, your child should enrich your communication by mastering another language, for example by learning French.
All languages have their level of difficulty, including French for children. However, compared to Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, learning French is easier because it doesn’t use a certain type of letter.
The tips that your child can try when learning French are as follows.
When learning anything, to be perfect requires a process. As with learning to paint, when learning a language initially your child may make a lot of mistakes. But don’t be ashamed of making mistakes. A little patience to keep learning will help you master it.
When learning a language the most important thing for your child to pay attention to is spoken communication. A written line of letters is just a collection of symbols used to represent the sounds of a language, but they cannot describe every nuance of sound and intonation.
Try developing a “good ear” for French. An easy and fun way to do this is to listen to French music, watch French movies.
Another important thing for your child to do when learning a language is to practice it.
Even if your child has been learning the language for years, and mastered all the rules of grammar, if your child does not practice speaking, your child will never speak well. Practice speaking as if you were having a conversation.
The time and commitment your child puts into learning the language will help you to master it.
Consistency is by far the most important factor. Setting aside twenty minutes a day almost every day to learn a language, will be more effective and efficient than studying hard for an hour or two, but only sporadically.
When learning a foreign language, listening skills usually develop faster than speaking skills. That way your child can understand, but not be able to respond.
It’s also not a good thing for your child to learn the language.
A good way to deal with this problem is to talk to yourself as much as possible. That way your child won’t be weighed down by the shame that so often burdens early language students.
These flashcards are an effective way to help you learn a language. Make the card small enough to be easy to carry wherever your child goes, and write Indonesian on one side and French on the other.
Make sure to always carry a few cards with you. That way if your child encounters wasted time, your child can turn it into useful time for learning.
Put a label that says vocabulary on the things you live in.
For example, for the refrigerator, your child can put a label that says ‘le réfrigérateur’, ‘la porte’ on the door, or ‘la fenêtre’ on the window.
Keep the labels on the item until your child has mastered it.
Progress in language learning is a process. If at any time your child feels not showing progress. do not be discouraged.
If your child is “stuck,” try going back and reviewing things your child has mastered. That way, your child will realize that your child has been able to go through the previous difficulties and is ready to move on and be able to go through other difficulties.
Try to find a native speaker with whom you can talk. It will help you to learn French pronunciation, tone, and intonation well.
In addition, your child can also exchange knowledge of your mother tongue with your study friends. These tips can be applied by your child directly or through social media.
Try reading aloud. In addition to your child benefiting from reading, your child will automatically get used to pronunciation well. As a beginner, try to read aloud as often as possible. al this does not need your child to do it outside the house, your child can start it in the room when it is free.
The trick above that your child can do to make learning French easier is to read newspapers, magazines, or articles in French. your child can print out the articles that your child gets, and save them for your practice. In addition, reading in hard copy does not make your eyes work as hard as when reading online.
Of course, your child may not immediately become fluent in French in just one day. Be diligent in practicing every day when your child has free time. Don’t give up easily and get bored when your child encounters difficulties or feels bored in the middle of your learning process. Always remember that success does not come in a short time, success does not go to those who give up easily in the middle of the road. The following are examples of kindergarten french worksheets that your child can study.
