Play-based learning is an important approach to teaching and learning, particularly for young children. This approach to education is centered around the idea that children learn best when they are having fun and engaging in activities that they enjoy. In the context of learning a new language, play-based learning can be an effective way to introduce children to new words and phrases in a natural and engaging way.
In Exploart, our trainers use a variety of resources to support their lesson - we play games, sing songs, get creative with arts and other playful activities to help our children learn vocabulary and sentence structure in a fun and engaging way. This approach can also help children develop important language skills, such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing, in a more natural and holistic way.
Play is a natural and enjoyable way for children to learn, and it allows them to explore and discover new things in a relaxed and stress-free environment. Most importantly, while play makes language learning more fun and engaging for children, it can help the children stay motivated and interested in learning the language! Play-based approach to language learning can also help children develop important skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication. These skills are essential for children to succeed in school and in life, and a play-based approach can help them acquire these skills naturally and organically.
All trainers share the same belief that a play-based approach to language learning can help children develop a positive attitude towards language learning, which can set the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
