Study Tips

  • Help your child access interactive websites on the internet especially relevant to young learners, there are lots of free and useful English language websites for kids.
  • Encourage good study habits by scheduling regular homework time and offering help and encouragement when necessary.
  • Listen to English cassettes - for example, music with English lyrics or storytelling.
  • Use CD-ROMs with educational games.
  • Watch appropriate English DVDs/television programs suitable to the age and level of the student. Animated films on DVD with language options can be a very good choice.
  • Use English when the child is already familiar with the story. This will help them focus on the lanugage rather than the plot.
  • Encourage children to read you any English story every day.
  • Let your child teach you what they learned in class. Look at the pages in the book your child studied. Ask them to identify pictures and name objects.
