DOTS Fist English. De 1 a 5 años
DOTS First English has been designed by inlingua for children from non-English speaking homes. Children acquire language skills naturally and easily by listening and speaking.
With DOTS First English, the learning process of the English language becomes associated with fun.
The DOTS First English program is for toddlers (1-2 yrs old) and preschoolers (3-5 yrs old). Each program is compatible with the cognitive development of its age group.
In class, the children are the focal point. They act, sing, say rhymes and interact with the material.
We live in a world in which the command of more than one language is important for success. Whether for personal or professonal reasons, learning a language opens doors.
Across the world, there is a demand for new generations to achieve communicative competence in at least one foreign language. In an increasingly demanding and competitive global society, this knowledge will give a person the necessary tools to excel.
A child’s ability to learn different languages is unlimited. Learning a second, third or fourth language poses no extra effort to learning.
Research and studies around the world emphasize that the early introduction of a second language is essential. It is a scientific fact that neural development begins in the early years of life. Between one and a half and five years of age all of the neural connections related to language have been developed. This stage is crucial. It is during this window of opportunity that maximum development is achieved. In adolescence the neural network is already established.
Children learn from everything. Learning is connected with all areas of experience and should focus on meeting physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
Specialists in education state that children are natural learners - they are curious, interested, and enthusiastic about learning new things - and point out that the best way to teach children is to build on their sense of fun and their natural learning style. This means that children learn by doing. By moving and experimenting they are motivated. They learn through their senses, by imitating and repeating. Praise and reinforcement are fundamental to the learning of a language while the children are interacting with their friends on their own level, in a positive environment.
