Tips to Teach English to Kids with Songs!

kids learn english with songs

One way to make English learning fun for kids is to introduce English through different media. Song is an excellent way for kids (as well as adults!) to learn common phrases, grammatical structures, and vocabulary without even realizing it! To help you in your language learning adventure, we’ve compiled some tips to help you sing and learn as a family.

Keep it fun: If you are just beginning to listen to music in English, introduce it casually, without pressuring your children to pay attention or sing along. Choose fun, silly songs that your children will engage with naturally. In Lingokids, you can find over 100 songs to get you started!

Singing in the car: Car rides are one of the best times to listen to English music. Sing “Wheels on the Bus” as you drive around town. Is it raining? Sing “Cowy’s Rainbow Colors Song“ and search for rainbows while learning the colors.

Watch sing alongs with lyrics: Rent sing-along DVDs featuring songs from your family’s favorite movies. Even if your child cannot yet read, children still absorb the printed words and build a meaningful foundation for literacy. Subscribe to our Lingokids Youtube Channel to find playlists and extended song compilations from Lingokids with lyrics!

Incorporate songs into daily routines: Sing songs around the house as you get dressed, brush your teeth, clean up toys, or prepare meals in the kitchen. The “Clean-Up Song” is an all-time favorite to encourage tidying up while having fun!

Get creative: Especially when you first start singing English, you will make mistakes. Use that to your advantage! If you confuse lyrics or song meanings, go ahead and create your own special renditions just for your family. Most importantly have fun!

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.
