Do not worry. Language acquisition is a skill. Work on the skill to improve. Boys tend to pick up a language slower than girls. They prefer to speak in the vernacular even with friends. It is alright. He will pick up as he grows. Language acquisition is an acquired skill. Hence the more one practises it would be improve. One of the parents ought to speak in English so that your child gets familiar with the language. As you speak relate to the surroundings Use games and activities to enhance learning Teach English songs or rhymes. Introduce the language through story telling Introduce the book reading habit. You can even enroll in a local library. Enroll in activities like story telling or public speaking or drama later on Do not worry too much about the grammar now. Let him build the vocabulary. It has to become part of daily life. Appreciate and applaud when he repeats a word or phrase correctly rly. Appreciate when he introduces a new word. Use the newspaper or children magazine liberally. Ask him to identify words in posters and ads. 2018-11-06 15:07:49

By repeating he is assimilating the sentences. This will help in acquiring the language. Also it is because he is familiar. You say he is going to a fresh class. Could you please tell me what it means. 2018-11-06 15:12:35

Hello expert, I'm a professional writer by trade and want my daugher also to pursue the same professional once grown up. How can I make sure she doesn't deviate from becoming a Writer to becoming a dancer or something else for that matter? I know it's not wise to force a child to be a certain way but still..

Hi Surabhi, Each child is unique. Children come through us into this world. We are a medium for them to come into this world. Each has his or her life plan and life purpose. As the primary caregivers it is upto us to provide the basic needs and apart from that incuclate good habits, education and help in acquiring life skills. We can dream for them but we cannot expect them to follow our dreams. That would be selfish is it not. Introduce books and the language. Yet do not expect your child to follow your steps. What if your child has a flair for some other profession? Would you want to squash their dream just to fulfill your wish? 2018-11-06 15:19:11

Give exposure to the language. Enrol your child in a library. Introduce story telling. Do writing along with your child. Your child may get motivated seeing you write. Give little topics for your child to explore and write on. Take your child to literary activities as per the age. If your child decides to go along your path it would be great. If your child doesn’t also it is great. Accept and move on happily. 2018-11-06 15:21:23

Do not worry. Every child would be most common their own mother tongue or the language used at home. Fluency in English can be acquired if the child is familiar with the language. So one parent has to speak in English with the child. Daily speaking at home will improve. Tell stories in English. Teach English rhymes. But little story books in English. But English has to be spoke consistently at home so that your child gets familiar and comfortable. 2018-11-06 15:24:46

Enrol in a local liberate. Use the English newspaper to introduce new words Point out words on ads and posters. Translate Hindi into English as much as possible. You could think of enrolling in a spoken English class. Appreciate and applaud when he speaks or repeats words or sentences. Play simple games like word building. Create little posters using words from newspapers or magazines. 2018-11-06 15:27:08
