if your child is not picking english but expresses fine in his native language. Having said that you could help him pick and speak in english with the following tips - 1. Get him nice picture english books, which you both could read together 2. Introduce him to age appropriate english comics/crosswords 3. Encourage him to speak with you in english 4. Speak to your teacher and share your child's hesitation in speaking in that language, so she could also be encouraging with him when he tries to speak in english. 5. You could even help him with a drama class/hobby class where he could pick the language and its expression
