Remember this category? In English, just in English.
They learn English at school. I cannot say if it’s useful to start learning English when you’re 6 or 7 years old, but as I don’t know, I think it cannot make any damage.
Evenmore, I’ve decided to help my children, or their teachers, or both.
Since last week, I wake up my kids talking to them in English. I wouldn’t dare doing it to my teenagers, they could kill me. I can well imagine their reaction:
Me: « Hello Darling, time to get up! Did you have a good night? Don’t forget to open your window, it stinks in your bedroom!
Them: « Mam’sssss, c’est bonnnnnn, sorssssss steupppppp » (*)
Well, I just do it with the 3 little ones, the 3 others manage themselves to get up on time anyway.
We started with the colors, and the name of their clothes. Not very easy for them to speak their first words of the day in English… But they listen nicely (in fact they’re half asleep), they do some sorts of mmmhhh which sound English (or Pakistanese)
After one week, they’re able to describe their shoes. It’s a good start, isn’t it? I don’t know when they’l be able to watch star wars without the subtitles!
(*) Get out of this f….g bedroom!
