Some of these practices are:
• Create meaningful learning contexts. Storytelling (whether it be stories or stories in general) may be the perfect way to motivate listening, speaking, and oral interaction.
• Learning by repetition and / or imitation is really effective at this age, having to repeat for example what a certain character in the story says, or when memorizing a song or a poem.
• Establishing rites and routines is important because it helps to structure what happens during the class.
• A maximum immersion in the target language is very important; That is: that the contact of students with the target language is produced not only through the teacher but also with the help of a wide range of resources such as songs, DVDs, books, ...
• Involvement of parents: In primary and secondary education it is essential to clearly define all teaching and learning objectives of the language in question, thus ensuring a reciprocal understanding between the school and the parents.
• Continuity and progression are factors that in primary education, and between primary and secondary education, are decisive both for the student's motivation and for his or her effective acquisition of the foreign language. For this reason, Baby Erasmus covers the whole formative cycle of language (0 - 6 years) and then accompanies its students with extracurricular classes.
In this regard, Baby Erasmus is developing several collaborative projects together with other English and Irish universities and nursery schools so that our students can enjoy real interaction with the English language and the diverse cultures that surround it.
