Language Learning Through Play

 

In the short run, sit-down-and-study language programs may seem more efficient because the students can 'learn' a lot of vocabulary in a short term. But, the problem is that what is learned is quickly forgotten.

 

Kids will truly acquire language skills when they use language to communicate in a meaningful way. And so, the most effective way to learn a language in the long run is through play. The language that they acquire while interacting in a genuine (and fun) way, they will use for life. We do a lot of activities with the kids. These activities encourage kids the lanuguage to come out naturally.
