Get some ideas on how to design and implement nursery teaching sessions by reading this assignment and also listening to the recorded teaching sessions carried out a month ago in a Private Nursery School in Nea Smyrni (Athens). Teaching English to Very Young Learners is an area worth exploring!! I am grateful to the Lord for the excellent comments of my professor in the Open University.
We already knew that learning another language improves our knowledge of our mother tongue, and thanks to the work of Professor Ellen Bialystok and others, we also knew that bilingualism has positive effects on the brain at both ends of life,” said Professor Cook.
“Young children develop theory of mind earlier if they know two languages, and in older people, bilingualism can postpone the onset of dementia.”
And the positive effects are not limited to children. “It is a common preconception that languages should be learnt early in life, as early as possible,” said Dr Bassetti. “But research shows that learning a language can change the way people think at any age.”
