    Default How to teach spoken english

    Hi. can any body help me finding out five ideas to teach spoken english for KG and primary kids? I think acting some stories is a good way to encourage non native speakers to use the language . And I can also add discussing some topics. Would you please give more ideas?

    What i do with young kids is to play games they know in their native language and use English during the game.
    Young kids have a very short attention span and you have to make it fun, fast and entertaining so they don't get bored.
    Songs are also a good idea.

    Any appropriate topic that depends on the learners level.
    Actually we are preparing for a summer course for our pupils and we are searching for the best ways to improve the spoken language.
    Thanks in advance
