Help your child to learn and speak English the way they learnt their native language. At home.By listening. By repetition. By playing.

The lessons are short, fun and interactive.

The snakes, Sam and Ben, are easy to make and fun to play with.

Soon they will be talking to Sam and Ben in English!

Listening. A day in Ho Chi Minh City

A day in Ho Chi Minh City

Listen and watch this one minute video.

Then try to answer the questions.

The answers will be published tomorrow in a new post.,

I am going into a Shopping Centre in Ho Ch Minh City.

There are lots of shops.

Toy shops. Cake shops. Chocolate shops.

I go down the escalator to the ground floor where I see people enjoying a coffee in the coffee bars or eating a meal in the restaurants.

Now I’m outside.

I buy a coconut juice from this lady.

It is very noisy,

The roads are crowded with motorbikes and scooters.

I walk down to the docks where it is much quieter and enjoy a coffee in the Terminal Coffee Bar watching the ferries departing for the islands.

Now test your listening and understanding.,

Questions:

1. Which city am I visiting?

2. How do I get to the ground floor?

3. Why is it noisy outside?

4. What drinks do I have?

5. Where is the ‘Terminal Coffee Bar’?

6. Are the roads busy or quiet?

Fun with Nursery Rhymesj

Language is musical.

Every language has a unique pattern and rhythm.

Reciting Nursery Rhymes helps you learn that pattern. It also helps pronounciation. This Spring I have mounted a special Nursery Rhyme Display outside my house (Jumble House) in Castel Rigone, Umbria to encourage local children to enjoy having fun learning and using English.

Look at this one :

Hickory Dickory Dock.

The mouse ran up the clock.

The clock struck one.

Dong!

The mouse ran down.

Hickory Dickory Dock.

Tick. Tock.
