English language has become Lingua Franca of our times. Wherever we decide to go, chances are we should be able to communicate in English. This might make us kind of lazy, and prevent from learning other languages. I remember the times when in high school I was “forced” to learn at least two other languages (Russian and German, Polish is my native one), but when I learned English, I did not care much about the earlier learned languages.

Although I am speaking English now, I do not feel the spirit of the language. I have troubles with articles, grammar structures, and very often I ask my friends (native English speakers) to check the content for possible errors. I think, it is because I began to learn English very late. I started attending ESL (English as the Second Language) program when I turned 20.

It was too late for me to learn the language without accent. I know some friends of mine who picked up the language very quickly. In my opinion, it is because they are musicians, sing or play instruments. The advantage of being musician is that he or she can pick up the “melody” of the language very easily, and after some relatively short period of time he or she can “sing” the language.

Children especially can learn any language very quickly. It is the advantage of being a child. It is their natural ability to learn to communicate with their parents and closest environment at a very young age. I know some children as old as 5 to speak at least two languages fluently appropriately to their age.

That is why children, in my opinion, should learn a foreign language as early as possible. Parents should not be terrified that their child will get confused, and will slow down learning, or in extreme case even forget, the native language.

Nowadays, the Internet is the most common way to get some information. It is not only about the news, music, books or e-books, but also a nice and convenient way to access online English language tutorials. It is a very handy way to teach your child easily and be fun for him of her.

Online digital materials might include, but are not limited to, downloadable files full of English songs and stories, games, quizzes and puzzles. The good side of the Internet is that these resources can be free, and easily accessible. For example, I would advice you to go and log on youtube and look for simple English stories, songs and alphabet.

Youtube is not the only source for English tutorials. Just go to google and search for “free online games for kids and toddlers.” I believe, the games might be fun and enjoyable for your children.
