Tips for parents or carers


This is a list of tips for people who are supporting young people whose first language is not English.

  • Focus on the language they need or their interests e.g. basic personal information is more important than how to spell ‘holepunch’

  • Limit how much vocabulary you practise with them e.g. people struggle to remember more than 10 new items of vocabulary

  • When correcting language be careful not to damage confidence - ask yourself can the child still be understood if they get that bit of grammar or pronunciation wrong, only try once or twice to correct a piece of language, don’t labour the point

  • Play, play, play! Depending on age then role plays such as doctors, restaurants and shopping are an excellent way of practising language. Having props / toys to set the scene and make it clear what’s happening whilst you’re acting it out is helpful

  • Leave plenty of time for the young person to speak, avoid doing all the talking for them!

  • Value their first language – try to learn a few words and phrases

  • If the young person gives a one word answer, praise their effort and model a simple sentence to show them how they could extend their vocabulary

  • Label items in your house with post it notes

  • Numbers - use money or count then steps as you walk up the stairs

  • Song - music and singing really help you remember the language. Don’t worry if you’re not tuneful, it’s not the point! Think ‘Head, shoulders, knees and toes’, ‘Old MacDonald’. If the song has actions even better, it helps the memory.

  • Use a picture dictionary e.g. The New Oxford Picture Dictionary

  • When you watch TV put the subtitles on

  • Praise the young person for any attempts at using English

  • Get arty! Drawing, painting, arts and crafts are great ways of generating language. Talk about the colours,

  • shapes, textures and what you are doing with the visual clues so that it's clear what you are talking about.

  • Avoid focusing on the art produced at the end, enjoy the process and the language

  • Be patient... young people will acquire language at different rates
