5 TIPS TO MAKE LEARNING FRENCH FUN FOR YOUR KIDS
Learning a second language can be a big job! Especially for little ones who might feel overwhelmed. It's not uncommon for children to resist practicing new French words. That's why it's crucial to make language learning enjoyable! When kids have fun learning a language, they're more likely to continue using it throughout their lives.
So, how can you make learning French fun for your kids? Luckily, there are simple ways to incorporate language learning into their everyday lives and cultivate a love for French. From play-based activities and engaging videos to challenges and cultural adventures, you have plenty of options. Here are our top 5 favorite strategies to ensure language learning remains an activity your child LOVES.
1. Incorporate play-based activities into French learning
Kids learn best through play! Integrate games into their language learning to help them acquire new French vocabulary. Many language programs offer game ideas, or you can get creative and adapt familiar games by translating keywords. Simple games like Snap, Tip, or I Spy can quickly become powerful teaching tools.
2.Connect French learning to cultural exploration
Learning a language is more than just memorizing words. Allow your child to discover the culture behind the French language. Encourage them to try French foods, share stories about France's history, explore different styles of music and film, and engage in cultural activities such as art or attending events.
3. Find a book series or TV show in French that your child enjoys
Make it something they look forward to, a reward that also helps them learn. Instead of seeing it as a task, they'll see it as a fun activity.
4. Make it a social experience
Everything is more enjoyable with friends, and language learning is no exception. Look for community playgroups or language learning groups where your child can practice the new French words in a different environment, alongside peers on the same language journey. Even having one other person, child, or friend learning French can create a sense of connection and motivate your child to use the language more.
5. Keep it varied!
A change of pace can keep things exciting and maintain your child's engagement in the learning process. If you've been following the same routine for a while, try introducing something new to keep your child excited. Swap video content for a book or a play. Learn in different locations, such as a café or restaurant, and discover French words in the real world. Repetition is essential in language learning, but sometimes a fresh perspective can make it more enjoyable.
