A child’s first language is learned by listening and speaking. Reading and writing comes much later after there is a good oral language foundation. Children speak first in single words and then in short sentences. Children learn nouns, adjectives, and verbs first. Grammar comes later. Good Language Education:  Good Language Education Listening and speaking are stressed to help develop comprehension and reading skills. Conversation and oral language skills, not dictation, are important. Principles:  Principles Listening skills are about the ability to extract meaning from a string of words. Reading is about extracting meaning from a series of written words. Principles:  Principles You cannot extract meaning from spoken language unless you understand the meaning of words. Understanding of sounds precedes understanding of the written word. Terminology:  Terminology Phonological Awareness – the ability to break down speech into smaller segments Phoneme – the smallest unit of sound Phonics – a method of teaching reading that emphasizes the association of sounds with letters Terminology:  Terminology Phonological awareness training – teaching the sound structure of words Auditory training Phonics training – teaching the connection between sounds and letters Training with print Teaching English:  Teaching English It is important to first develop oral language skills. Phonological awareness skills should be taught orally without print. Phonological awareness training helps children learn vocabulary and reading skills. Danger of teaching writing early:  Danger of teaching writing early They will learn English like they learn to write Chinese – as a series of keystrokes. This limits the size of the vocabulary. They can never develop fluent and accurate reading. They will have trouble with talking to people and writing good English.
