How to motivate your child to learn English?
Motivation is one of the determining factors in language learning. Children who adopt a positive attitude towards learning English are more likely to show perseverance, and not to give up when they encounter difficulties.
There are two main sources of motivation:
Children's motivation to learn English is also linked to the positive image they have of English speakers and the culture of English-speaking countries. If they like music, movies or sports from English-speaking countries, they are more likely to want to learn English.
In order to make your child bilingual, it is important that he can open up to the world, discover the sounds of the English language from an early age. Getting used to hearing and speaking English will make his life easier, there's no doubt about it.
Learning English is not just about what your child learns at school or at home. A large part of this learning depends on its immersion in the host country and its culture and it is the best linguistic tool. When your child learns English following an excellent language exchange in Ireland, it is more or less guaranteed.
