5 Tips to Learn the Animals in English for Kids

animals in english for children

Kids have the purest hearts and an unconditional love for animals. They would be thrilled if they can talk and show their love for animals in as many languages as possible. That's why we give you these 5 tips to help your child learn their names in English:

1. Songs - Start with the classic ''Old MacDonald Had a Farm''. Download the English learning app for kids - Lingokids and find many songs about animals (you can also find many activities and games for learning English too!).

2. Animal movement cards - Print some cards with animal pictures and write down how they move - ''roll like a pig'', ''gallop like a horse'', ''pounce like a cat', etc. Draw a card in turns and get ready to laugh to tears.

3. Drawing and colouring - In your nearest bookstore pick up some animal themed colouring and connect-the-dots books. Grab some crayons and start having fun. Make up stories about the animals as you colour.

4. Take them to a farm - Kids learn English best if they interact with the objects they learn about. If you have a chance take them to a nearby farm and have a fun family day out while learning.

5. Seasonal tips - Learn about sea animals in the summer. Use all of the tips we mentioned above and practice the animal names while playing at the beach. Learn about polar animals in the winter.  Draw and colour polar animals while cuddled under your warmest blanket drinking tea.

(Pssssst! We have FREE printable Lingokids material for you about animals - songs, colouring, books and more!)

How to Learn About Food in English for Children

learn food in english for children

Who wouldn't like learning a new language while food shopping, cooking and playing? Well it's possible 🙌 , and bellow you can find a few ideas to get you started.

1. Go grocery shopping - Take your little one to the closest supermarket to help you out with the regular grocery shopping. Make the shopping list in English and craft it creatively - put pictures next to every item so that your child would recognise them easier (you can make and print your own custom made grocery list ). Wandering around the shelves looking for your favourite food is a great way to engage in an English conversation for kids. Try short and simple sentences like ''Could you pass me 2 carrots, please?'', ''Thank you!''. Point to a particular item and ask them ''Can you tell me what is this?''. We're sure your child will have so much fun.

2. Cook together - So now that you're back from the grocery shopping, get ready to make some mess in the kitchen. Prepare everything you need to cook your kid's favourite dish. Put the recipe on a paper and again, put pictures on the recipe. Have your child read the measurements out loud to you.

3. Play food games on your tablet/mobile phone - Download a basic English learning app for children and play games while learning about food in English. In the English learning app Lingokids you can find many fun games so your child can learn while having tons of fun.

Have a yummy time learning! 🍳
