From the moment a child arrives to this world is exposed to an endless of signals and stimulations that the brain begins to assimilate. Lights, colors and sounds which will be a part of the new born life until his death. One of the first stimuli received by the baby is the voice from the parents. These voices are translated into sounds by the phonological system, some months later into meanings then complete words and eventually, some years later, into sentences. These four steps could summarize the acquisition of the language which even not being taught it is one of the longest and most laborious processes for the child.
Do Thai children between the ages of six and eight learn to spell differently than native English speaking children of the same age and how much does their own personal language affect their ability? Through researching different literary sources, this paper looks at this subject in three sections, how Thai’s learn Thai, how English children learn English and how the similarities and differences can be used in order to make learning English easier for Thai students. There can be no doubt that Thai children have challenges due to the limitations of their native language, limited availability to speak English in a social setting and the challenges that English speaking children have with some of the rules in the English language.

For example an English teacher in a class give the students an exercise to do about nouns, here kids will imagine all the rules or methods in order to solve it. If kids have weak working memory they will not solve it because they come with a solution so they have a difficulty in storing on the new information. Beside this, remembering instruction is a way children use working memory to learn. In fact, when kids are asked to do a specific exercise for example about transitions so they should remember the information they learned about it and the new information the teacher explained. If they have weak working memory they will not be able to do them both at the same time.
The reader sees this in the text when she begins to tell them the story, “In a quiet voice that was often interrupted by loud questions from the children, the aunt started a not-so-interesting story about a girl who was good” (Saki 5). In, “The Use of Force,” both the mom and dad have no control over their daughter. When the doctor first arrives, the parents try to coax the child into opening her mouth for the doctor. However, Mathilda refuses and attempts to attack the doctor. The text says, “As I moved my chair a little nearer suddenly with one catlike movement both her hands clawed instinctively for my eyes and she almost reached them too.
In some schools; variety of approaches are used to bilingual education, designing individual programs based on the needs of each child (Santa, 2004).” In the bilingual education, one of the most common approaches is transitional bilingual education (TBE). TBE programs include ESL. However most classes are directed in children 's home languages until they get proficiency for English only classes. For instance children who have not sufficiency in English might not be ready to learn academic subjects in English. Children like these, spend time in an intensive ESL program in the school and receive instruction in their native language.
"Maternal- Infant Bonding", by Dr Marshall H. Klaus and Dr John H. Kennell shows the bonding period in the weeks following birth is vital for foundations of human attachment and relationships. But don't fret - not all parents have warm fuzzy feelings towards their baby at birth; it can take time. The birthing experience and your parenting expectations play a significant part in how you feel and cope as a new parent. You may have formulated ideas of what living with a newborn will be like; well, here is a realistic one. Newborns cry - it's their first form of
To begin with, it is important to always remember that learning to produce proper speech sounds in words and phrases is a gradual process that demands adequate time. Speech sounds develop naturally, along with other signs of normal growth during the stages of infancy until a child's seventh or eighth year. Children develop speech abilities at different rates and ages. Firstly, babies begin by playing with sounds, then babble. This babble develops as children listen and imitate people around them.
Literature 1 (Journal article) Bilingualism in the Early Years: What the Science Says Krista Byers-Heinlein & Casey Lew-Williams Learning Landscapes Overview: The journal mainly focus on explaining questions regarding outcomes of bilingualism and appropriate methods to teach bilingual children which helps readers to approach bilingualism from the individual development aspect and compare bilingualism with monolingualism from micro aspect. Summary: In the journal, confusion on different languages shown by children is regarded as code-mixing and is stated that is a normal process of language development which is due to the limited vocabularies bilingual children have. Besides, it is suggested that high-quality, high-quantity, and balanced exposure
When a tenth grader enters in a foreign language classroom, he/she is anxious and nervous about learning a foreign language. There are many ways to modify assignments and assessments to help English learners, including using sentence frames, sentence starters and vocabulary banks. These modifications provide support structures that allow them to better articulate their thoughts and opinions without having to nervously struggle with every single word. Modifications can also help reduce the fear of judgment because they have tools to guide them to the correct way to verbalize or write their responses. Once they become more advanced, those sentence starters and vocabulary words will become second nature, and you can build on that support structure
