How can our children learn a new language effectively?
In order for our children to learn English effectively, they should be exposed to everyday English phrases and high frequency words. The Budding Bean Immersion English does precisely that from the first lesson.
Most of the other English programs for children learning English focus on acquiring new words and vocabulary, which may not work well for Asian children with zero or minimal English.
How can our children learn English as easily and as effectively as they learn their mother tongue?
Children require an English environment for them to learn English naturally. Currently existing English programs offered in schools and learning centres cannot or do not create the kind of environment nor the opportunity for the children to speak and practice what they have learnt.
Why do existing English programs not work for our children?
Existing English programs do not work for our children because of several reasons. Among others, they focus on vocabulary and not language expressions, many are teaching phonics to zero and very minimal English speaking children*. Some teachers are struggling with the use of correct English grammar and language expressions and may not have received effective training to teach English to children.
*Research shows that it is not effective to teach children phonics when they have zero-English or very minimal English.
Why is it that after many years of learning English, our children are still unable to speak good English?
Currently, in countries where English is spoken as a second language, there are limited avenues for the children to be able to get enough English exposure and English-speaking environment for them to use the language that they have learnt. It also does not help that some teachers are not fluent and are not equipped to teach the English language.
What are the problems with the existing English programs?
Many who are using the existing English programs generally focus on the material taken from publishers but are not focused on creating an English environment for their children. The lessons are usually not interesting and teachers have difficulty delivering their lesson and engaging with the students in a positive manner.
Can your teachers teach phonics easily and successfully?
English phonics comes with many complicated rules. There are easily 160 rules and exceptions. This makes it extremely difficult even for a teacher with a good command of the language to be able to pronounce well and teach effectively.
Can your students effectively learn phonics?
There are easily 160 rules and exceptions, making English one of the most complicated languages to learn and acquire. With a plethora of different sounds and sound combinations, it is extremely difficult for a student, let alone a child with zero or minimal English to pronounce all the sounds correctly and accurately.
Moreover, children especially those below seven years old are not ready to learn phonics rules that require analytical skills. On the other hand, some children may be able to produce the sounds fairly accurately but they will not be able to understand the concept nor the words.
Budding Bean Immersion Phonics has developed an innovative teaching technique that overcomes this problem.
