The “Greeting Song: Hello” is a great way to help your little one take the next step to communicate better in English!

One of the first things a child learn is waving their hand to greet someone, it’s a simple motion that carries a lot of meaning, and it’s a huge step in their socialization process. Next, when language comes along and they start speaking, saying “Hello” is the goal for every child.

By age 2, children usually start to pick up greeting habits from their parents. They are aware of these social clues and try to copy this behavior.

However, children learning English as a second or foreign language have more difficulties when acquiring this knowledge than native English speakers do since parents usually use greetings in their native language.

Is at this moment when songs in English come in handy. They help parents teach their little ones different concepts in English and, at the same time, are useful resources to improve their proficiency and understanding of this language.

This children song in English is great to teach the youngest of the house how to say “hello”, making emphasis in saying it not only to those important persons in a child’s life - such as friends and family- but also, to everyone else, since it’s really nice to be kind and polite!

To start this fun and useful lesson with your little one you can first sing the song a couple of times, that way he or she can get used to the rhythm and the lyrics. This will make the process much easier since they will feel more comfortable with the song!

Next, once you’re familiarized with the music, it’s time to watch the video! In it, you’ll get to accompany Billy during a day in his life. First, you can see Billy waving hello from inside a room… But, where is he? He is inside a classroom! Of course, Billy is at school learning and sharing with his teacher and classmates. What a fun time!

After school, Billy gets home and as he comes in, he sees his mom and dad and, of course, he greets them and gives them a big hug. They are a lovely family!

In the afternoon, after he has done his homework, Billy gets to spend some time with his friends. Since he hasn’t seen them in a while, he says hello to them as well. It’s so nice to be with friends!

Watch the video and encourage your little one to mimic Billy’s movements and explain the importance of saying “hello” when coming home, or seeing friends when arriving at a place.

Learning this basic lesson will improve your child’s language skills since establishes the basic fundamentals of communication.

Additionally, using the song, you can also practice the pronouns in English . Explain to your little one that the pronoun “I” refers to the person who’s speaking, and ask him or her to repeat the sentence “I like to say hello”.

Now, have and fun and learn how to greet with this lovely tune for kids!
