  • Understand Foreign Speech

    One of the most common errors of students in the perception of foreign speech at the hearing is an attempt to mentally transfer the audible text in their native language. That is, for understanding speech, they resort to the translation. It's just critical time, which prevents the successful mastery of a foreign language. From using their native language as a mediator to get rid of. Next, consider one of the most effective methods of removing the intermediate language.

    One of the most efficient ways to develop the skills of direct (non-transferable) speech perception is the technique of translating cursive writing. Others who may share this opinion include Harold Ford. First, find out what is hiding under that term. You certainly will not once had the opportunity to see on television meeting with politicians, big foreign counterparts. And most of all, pay attention to inconspicuous people who are close to them with clipboards in hand and something fast recording at a time until someone says. As you might guess, it's translators.

    What they record in my notebook? It is quite true – we are a foreign worker, then to translate into their native language. But if you get a chance to look at records interpreter, you know, what would you see there? No, not words. Drawings. That's right! Crooked characters, disparate characters, mysterious images. The interpreter does not write-sounding speech, he paints, that is, metaphorically captures the thoughts, that sound in the words of the speaker. So, I repeat: the interpreter does not write the speech itself, and not even her shorthand.

    Education in England, opens up broad prospects to graduates. Traditionally, English education was considered the equivalent quality as the foundation of it are deep traditions and techniques of education and learning, which evolved over centuries. Today, many Russians prefer to send their children to be educated in England. And all would be well and good, if on the epidemiological situation, which emerged in recent months. Many parents are seriously concerned about the "ban" on the departure of Mr Onishchenko organized groups of children to England for training. Although this prohibition is more advisory in nature, since legally fixed by the Government. In addition, receive education or be educated in England dealt with first parents, and they in turn claim that counseled their children to security measures and rules of conduct in public places with high risk of infection with swine influenza virus. According to the British Council in Moscow in 2008 to obtain a visa to travel to obtain education in England wanted 17 thousand Russian citizens.

It's official statistics, as is well known, the actual numbers, as a rule, exceed average. With regard to the director of British educational institutions themselves, they prefer not to make any harsh statements about the "advisory" measures on the travel ban, saying that they would Any decision of the Russian partners. However, for its part ensure compliance with all epidemiological norms on campus, including the provision of necessary medical assistance in case of infection.

  • The Skills

    Many courses for preschool age children focus on learning the alphabet, poems and songs, or simply learns the words. But such an approach is fundamentally wrong. It is necessary that the child not only learn the words like a robot, but also knew how to apply them in different situations. You just need a tongue to speak with a student. In the 18-19 centuries, people of noble Origin said in several languages. They are hired for this child governess who speak a foreign language, which is a day spent with the ward, talking to him. She uttered not a word in Russian, simply because she did not know him.

    That's exactly the same way you should be guided to choose a teacher for their child. Will be the most ideal option, if other than the teacher can find a man for whom studied child's native language will be. But there's worth noting that before embarking on the study of language, the way it developed in your child's. After all, if a child does not have enough practice of communication, even in their native language, then what kind of communication in Foreign can there be? Yes, he will be able to learn and use a couple – three sentences, but that all the knowledge and over. If your child has a large vocabulary of Russian speech, he is fluent and can even podiskutirovat with peers, then it is much easier and faster to succumb to a foreign language.

    Incidentally, the frequency of ongoing studies. We return to the example above. Nanny or governess with vospituemym spent the whole day. For our lessons conducting classes should be as often as possible, just that the child has not had time to forget what he learned in the previous lesson and always had the skills. It is recommended to conduct such exercises at least four times a week. Ask the teacher to attend a lesson at least once, listen to his ability to speak a foreign language, his ability to properly teach and to learn to pronounce words phonetically. It has great importance, especially to be clearly seen in high school. In no case should a preschooler learn to read and write in the target language. This can begin only after the child is able to do it on native language, and then, under the condition that he fully understands what he says and hears. How was the training, quality or not, should not be judged by another child. For example, the child's neighbors, too, has been studying foreign language, but in the other group, and the domestic uses words the language being studied. This does not mean that your child has learned nothing. Just every child a period of formation of language and its concepts, each of them individuality that can not measure the overall measure. A lot of parents want to see the result almost after the first class. This process requires you to maximize patient, and then you will definitely get result. And in the end, I ask really look at things. At preschool age, not all children under force, but may even do not need a foreign language. You should not force a person for their own self-sufficiency. There are many reasons that you were proud of their child, and if now is not, it would soon be required.
