How to use the Kids Vocabulary Material

You should start by looking at the vocabulary list either online or as the flashcards with your kids so they can start to learn the words. Then listen to the recording of the vocabulary being spoken by a native English speaker so you can hear the correct pronunciation.

After that you should look at the ESL kids worksheets, wordsearches for kids and ESL games for kids sections. These have lots of resources for you to download to use with your kids to help them learn the meaning of each word and how to write it.

Remember that it is good to learn a language by working for a short time each day rather than one long session each week, so each day look at the vocabulary and listen to the pronunciation video before doing just one worksheet and playing a game. This means that there will be enough material for you to use over several days, so your kid will be able to really learn the vocabulary.
