One of the concerns of every parent is raising a child who can learn the necessary skills at the right time and create a bright future for their child. Teaching a second language or English is one of the main concerns of parents these days. If you, as a parent, are thinking of teaching this skill to your child, we suggest you follow the Happy Ent website and this article.

 

What is bilingualism?

Bilingualism in the true sense means being able to speak two languages at an advanced level and with complete mastery so that the second language is no different for you from your mother tongue.

There is no doubt that mastering a new language means opening a door to a new world for all of us. On the other hand, learning English requires a lot of time and definitely includes its own expenses.

Unfortunately, sometimes, despite spending this time and money, we still fail to learn for some reason. In this situation, we blame our parents that "I wish you had thought about me when I was a child!" Your child can learn English from an early age without the need for language classes and spending exorbitant expenses.

Have you ever wondered how we learned to speak? Who taught us the correct way to speak? Naturally, we have been able to learn and speak the mother tongue by being in the environment and listening. Raising a bilingual child is done in exactly the same way. By simulating an English-speaking environment for children, English words, phrases and expressions are created in his mind without any language teacher and teacher, just like learning the mother tongue, which is done by simulating the environment with cartoons suitable for the child's age.

 

Becoming bilingual or going to a language class?

Bilingualism is different from teaching English. Bilingualism means learning unconsciously, education means learning voluntarily and consciously and with planning. The question that arises here is whether a child can learn English like a mother tongue? The answer is yes, children can.

The difference between a language class and bilingualism is the difference between an atmosphere and an ocean. If you want your child's language knowledge to be limited to reading a few books and the language knowledge of a few professors in this field, it is better to choose a language class and spend years of time and pay a lot of money.

But if you want your child to speak and be fluent in English like a native speaker, choose bilingualism at the lowest cost. A child's mind is like a sponge that absorbs everything quickly. The growth and development of the second language in your child depends on the age and exposure of the child in the environment.

It should be noted that both languages (mother tongue and English) must be presented in sufficient quantity. The key to your success in making your child bilingual is nothing but time and patience.
