Teaching Children Foreign Languages through Play

Language, Learning

Children have advantages in foreign language training as their brains are sponges allowing them to learn quicker than adults. 

Children Inspired by Foreign Language Training Toys 

Children can start learning foreign languages at any age. Technology has advanced, creating toys that help children learn foreign language, develop early age motor skills, language skills, counting skills, music, creative thinking, logic thinking, etc. 

Some of these options are free online! For example, a radio can help your child learn a language. One of the best things I like about many foreign language training toys is that they are affordable and portable. Children get better deals than adults do when it comes to foreign language training.

How do the radios work? 

Radio programmes are generally suitable for children twelve months and older.

Radio programmes are generally suitable for children twelve months and older. Some programs feature live songs and light LED shows (depending on how ‘atas’ your radio is). Your child can use interactive visuals, letters and numbers to learn a foreign language. In addition, your child will feel inspired when hearing songs that help them to learn. Your child can sing and dance with the musicians, which play over 12 songs. The child has three different learning radio stations, which he/she can choose from the dial. The lights are animated, which reinforces visualization when learning the tunes, numbers, letters, etc. 

The toys are portable, so your child can take them on road trips. Your child will learn to count to twenty in a foreign language count, starting upward and then down, remember to use uppercase letters, as well as lower case letters and so on. Your child will also learn each day, from Sunday to Saturday and build motor skills, ROM, etc., from moving to the music. Phonic language radios are available also. 

What other options are open? 

You also have the choice of magnetic farm animal sets. The farm magnets are suitable for children twelve months and older also. The magnets allow your child to match a combination of animals. The child has modes, which gives him/her the advantage of mixing and matching more than 20 childish or real-like animals. Each time your child matches the animals, he/she learns each name and the way the animals sound. Your child gets the fun in facts that include live music. Your child can learn by associating images that they know with new words. This strategy is, of course, not limited to cute farm animals but can be any topic!

Another choice is the learn and grove toy, which counts Maracas, helping your child from foreign language training. The toy is excellent for children six months and up to thirty-six months. Your child will feel inspired to explore the toy and create his/her music through music and sound. 

The concept is to encourage your child’s imaginative interaction skills. Your child will learn in Spanish and English how to count to ten. This will improve your child’s comprehension skills in numbering order. Many of the activities include contrastive learning tools, such as colours. 

Your child will enjoy purple, blues, green, yellow, and orange as he/she learns Spanish. Your child will develop motor skills, vocabulary and will learn to count to ten and know his colours. 

You have choices in drums, musical tables, Little Leap, phonics and more to help your child learn foreign languages. Many of the toys offered in foreign language training are remarkably cheap, so you can invest in several if you choose. Take your time and shop around the Internet. Look for coupons to save you money on foreign language training toys for children. You can find a surplus of deals at many stores online. Inspire your child today!

Learning is always best handled when you build learning skills and memory.
