為什麼送小孩進英文playgroup很重要

當年輕的家長為自己的小孩選擇學前遊戲小組的時候,很多家長不知道一個為孩子選一個什麼樣的遊戲小組更好。因為當前各種各樣的學前遊戲小組種類繁多,從語言類型是分,既有中文的遊戲小組,也有英文playgroup;從活動內容上分,有數學遊戲小組,各種愛好的遊戲小組,藝術方面的遊戲小組等等,也有的是較著重讓孩子適應群體生活,掌握生活自理能力。每一種遊戲小組的側重面是不一樣的,首先家長要確定一下送小孩進遊戲小組的目的,然後問問自己,你希望孩子側重那種語言基礎。 一般來講,兒童語言發育期有幾個重要階段,其中1-1.5歲是兒童語言發育的第一階段,也是最重要的一個階段。如果你希望自己的孩子可以早一些接觸並學習母語以外的語言,在這一階段讓孩子加入英文playgroup是個非常明智的選擇。在英文playgroup中,首先老師會為孩子營造出一個輕鬆愉快的英語氛圍,孩子可以在不知不覺中接觸英語,不會感受到任何學習方面的壓力,孩子會覺得他們是在做遊戲。現代心理學和教育學的研究成果都表明:在輕鬆歡樂的氣氛中學習,學習的效果最好。這是因為在輕鬆愉快的情形下,大腦更容易接受和記憶新事物。而英文playgroup就是在這樣的環境中讓孩子學習英語的。 在英文playgroup中學習英文還有一個優勢,就是群體效應。心理學告訴我們,一個人自己單獨學習,和大家在一起群體學習一項內容,其效果是有很大差別的。在一個集體中大家一起學習的效果比自己單獨學習好很多,這一群裡效應在兒童身上體現的更加明顯。孩子大多都有一種攀比心理和在集體中勝出的心理,在這一心理作用下,小孩會比著學習。特別是在英文playgroup這樣一個具有輕鬆氛圍的環境中,更加可以激發兒童的學習熱情。 孩子的遊戲心理普遍是非常強的,英文playgroup就是利用孩子的這種心理,以遊戲的形式教學兒童英文。這裡沒有學校裡的課堂,但有很多各式各樣的遊樂區。在這些遊樂區裡,孩子能夠接觸到各樣的英文單詞和日常用語。英文playgroup的老師更是經常組織孩子們進行多種有趣的主題活動,在這些主題活動中,孩子們不知不覺地和老師學習者英文。這樣是學習方式,不但輕鬆,更會讓孩子們學的扎實,使他們從小打下一個堅實的英文語言基礎。有了這樣一個語言基礎,可以為將來孩子的學習,乃至出國深造積攢下一筆巨大的精神財富。 兒童的語言天賦開發越早越好,1歲到3歲是兒童語言發展的黃金時期。那些準備讓您的小孩打下一個英文基礎的家長們,你們不要再猶豫啦,趕快尋找一家優秀的英文playgroup,讓您的孩子早日盡快接受良好的英文教育吧!
