Teenage Years: The ideal time to learn a new language
By the age of t children tend to approach language in a more academic, less spontaneous way. They perfectly master their language during adolescence and no longer have this motivation characterizing the very small: the desire to be understood.
More innocent, they will be more afraid of making mistakes, of being ridiculous and of seeing their comrades make fun of him. Learning a foreign language is more of an effort than a pleasure . It’s up to you to motivate him to find interest in learning a new language. For example, establish family rituals . Once or twice a week you can do an activity together, a meal, a sport, a family outing, where for half an hour everyone will try to speak English.
You can also offer him a book, or a comic book in another language that you will read together . Listening to music or watching movies in English is also a great way to improve a teenager’s language skills.
The possibility of a trip abroad or an exchange with the family of a foreign student can also be very helpful to tackle a language and its culture. This allows the teenager to better approach the world around him. The important thing is that your child feels your interest. May he have the pleasure of sharing with you this new learning.
