The kitchen is the most visited place in the house, so when learning a foreign language, we can’t bypass it. In this matter, both common methods can come to our aid: cards, audio recordings, etc., as well as independently invented study ideas. When it comes to learning a foreign language by children, kids can agree with their parents that they will name the most delicious dish on the table only in a foreign language; or say the traditional "thank you"; parents, in turn, can call children to the table, also only in a foreign language, etc. The bottom line is that the language being studied should be firmly integrated into everyday life and used as often as possible.

If you decide to learn a list of words about the kitchen in different languages, do not rush to cover all the vocabulary at once. It will be much more efficient to divide all the words planned for study into topics and systematically study them. For example, you can first learn food, then household items, names of dishes, dishes, etc.

In general, the process of learning a foreign language can be made interesting not only for children, but also for adults. It is not at all necessary to tune in to the educational mood, spending hours memorizing complex structures. At the initial stage, the main thing is to learn to listen and at least understand a little what is being said in simple sentences, and then in whole texts.

Audio recordings will help you with this. Listen to foreign speech as much as possible, watch films with subtitles or cartoons (if we are talking about learning a foreign language as a child).  You will see that with understanding, the desire to expand your vocabulary will come to you, and with it the desire to speak.

Learning a foreign language with a child

Returning to the topic of learning a foreign language with children, try using the following technique. Words about the kitchenwrite on pieces of self-adhesive paper and glue them together with the baby on the appropriate objects. These can be pots, cups, cabinets, etc. Keep calling them when you use them. Thus, the child will always have new words before his eyes, which he will easily learn in the shortest possible time.

Auditing will be useful. Their essence is as follows: you turn on a recording in a foreign language dedicated to a certain topic, listen together, and then tell each other (at the initial stage in your native language, and then, when your vocabulary allows, try to speak in a foreign language) about what they heard and how they understood. You can also write down what you hear on paper, and then check with each other. This method makes it easier to learn foreign speech by ear, and also develops speaking / writing skills.

Of course, the process of learning a foreign language cannot be called an easy task. However, it is in your power to do everything to make it interesting and exciting, so that you would like to continue studying it and applying the knowledge gained in practice.
