Exposure to authentic English is important

Exposure to authentic English is important in ESL education. The purpose is not to understand 100%, but to become comfortable with “real English.” In the English classroom, we use techniques to make the language more understandable for the student. Such as slowing down our speaking speed and repeating more often. However, in the real world it maybe more difficult to understand. YouTube videos made for native English speaking kids are a great source for your child. Below there is a link to the English version of Sesame Street. In the future, we plan on providing more tips like this to help your student improve their English.

Here’s a Link to Sesame Street’s YouTube channel: http://ow.ly/NTZlI
