One way to learn language effectively

Today I want to discover about learning language effectively. I want to touch more on learning language for childrens espeacially. But may be this way could be used to anybody. So this is the story. I have 4 , 3 and 1 year old kids. And for your information my native language is Malay. What I do train them to speak well in english is to play a learning CD for them. Actually not to speak well in english ... I would rather say to train them to start learning how to speak in english. The most effective way is to play the CD over and over and over and over again. This is the most effective way how to improve the learning skill. I play the cd for my kids everyday at least one hour a day. But you know, they always enjoy watching it for hours eventhough I play the cd everyday. They never get bored. They usually can captured the words and can start speak the words after 2 months. After 2 months I can see the results. But make sure that the CD you bought is fun and can attract them to watch . I used to play Disney Magic English CDs for my kids. I also have a set of Magic English also from Disney. This is very effective. Infact , I also enjoy watching with them. But the most enjoyable moment is when your kids can communicate with you in english .. other different language. That is impressive. I am really happy because the way they speak is naturally from their mind. Usually people speak english when think first in their native language then translate it into english in their mind then they start to spell out. That will going to be poor english ... like me for example ? :) But what happened to a children learning english at the beginner stage is they think in english and they spell out the word naturally. That is the different.

I also wanted to tell you that if you have a Playhouse Disney Channel at your cable/sattelite TV. Turn in on 24 hours. This method also works. I used to on the tv and set it to this channel so my childrens can learn many things from there. I have sattelite tv (ASTRO) in my house and at the lowest price I can have this channel on. You don't have to buy a bunch of CD's at a high price. From that channel you can have Barney's, JOJO Circus, Little Einstein, Out of the box, Madeline and other other education program . So you save on your penny for this. You just pay monthly at the a very cheap price compare how much you have to spend on buying education CD's. Another thing is the cartoon is updated and have various series. So , it is a good choice I think.

I also think that you must always speak english with your kids. This way is the common way. But first get them learn the vocabs and words first through the CD or the Playhouse Disney Channel program so they rich with words and can speak well too.

I don't know if you get what I mean. But what I wanted to share with you this information . Combine this way this way and start see the results about 2 months after.

Got to go !
