Pronounciation and Foreign Accents while teaching English to your kids

-Consider that an enormous number of English teachers are not native speakers and have a foreign accent. This should not stop you from teaching, but make sure people can understand you and that the words are recognizable. The accent is not an issue as long as it is understood.

-Always use audio resources to listen with your baby.

-Even native speakers make mistakes but try to use correct grammer, and stay simple.

An African Tale “The Man Who Never Lied” For Kids

During the english sessions with my baby, ı always wanted to use rare folks and tales. The following folk tale is very special. I strongly recommend it for reading. Have fun…

Once upon a time there lived a very wise man who never, ever lied. His name was Mamad. Mamad was famous all over the land, far and wide, for his reputation of always telling the truth.
The king heard about Mamad and ordered his subjects to bring him to the palace. He looked at the wise man and asked:
” Mamad, is it true, that you have never lied?” ” It’s true.”
“And you will never lie in your life?”
” I will never lie in my life.”
“Okay, tell the truth, but be careful! Lies are cunning! They get on your tongue easily.”
Several days passed and the king called Mamad once again. The king was determined to trick Mamad into lying. With a big crowd gathered all around, the king talked with Mamad as he prepared to go hunting. With one foot in his horse’s stirrup, he ordered Mamad:
“Go to my summer palace and tell the queen I will be with her for lunch. Tell her to prepare a big feast. You will have lunch with me then.”
Mamad bowed down to the king and then set off to find the queen. The king laughed and said:
“We won’t go hunting and now Mamad will lie to the queen. Tomorrow we will laugh on his behalf.”
But the wise Mamad went to the palace and said:

“Maybe you should prepare a big feast for lunch tomorrow, and maybe you shouldn’t. Maybe the king will come by noon, and maybe he won’t.”
“Tell me will he come, or won’t he?” asked the queen.

“I don’t know whether he got on his horse or whether he put his left foot on the ground after I left.”
Everybody waited for the king. He came the next day and said to the queen:
“The wise Mamad, who never lies, lied to you yesterday.”
But the queen told him about the words of Mamad. The king realized that the wise man never lies, and says only that, which he saw with his own eyes.

colours

adjectives (e.g. big, small, tall, happy, sad, tired)

the body parts

toys

clothes

animals (e.g. pets, farm animals, wild animals)

It is essential to start “English time’ language, so use the same phrases with your child each time, e.g. ‘It’s English time! Let’s sit down. Which song shall we start with today?’ Children will soon pick up phrases such as please; thank you; Can I have …?; Where is …?; Point to …; What colour is it?; It’s …; I like …; I don’t like …

Don’t forget that having fun is the center of your teaching activities. Never push so hard. Have a good day….
