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.
