Like any adult can’t be isolated from other people even for one day a child needs communication with their peers.

A child starts feeling the first urge for communication since about 3rd month of life. Since that time and onwards the child will express the desire to be present during all chores and home routing as well as will be constantly demanding attention from the parents. After three years old the child will need more extensive communication than just with parents. They will discover desire for communication with their peers.

Communication with peers has extensive impact on general development of a child and their social skills. It is the first time when a child encounters social environment and extends boundaries of their consciousness. That is why it is important for this first experience to be positive* encouraging a child to establish new contacts and communication with new people. At the same time social contacts and communication experienced by a child at this age can be referred to as a partnership. A child in their preschool years needs a playmate in any kind of his/her activity.

*Our teachers understand how important first encountering of a child with foreign language is both as the first encountering with peers in a small group. The methods employed by the school aim to make this first experience positive. We aim for your child to have all the support and encouragement at the time of his/her first experience with language and communication with peers. We want for your child to live in a bright, colourful, beautiful and friendly environment.

At the same age children accumulate lots of energy and start experience the need to move a lot, and also children ask lots of questions at this age. a8

Both activities have underlying reasons. Children develop and acquire motor skills through action, movement and develop communication skills through asking questions and creating a dialogue**. Dialogue with adult consisting of questions and answers with direct participation of a child means a lot for the communication skills.

**A teacher encourages conversational skills and communication in English through a dialogue with a child. In English this dialogue consists of short phrases with target vocabulary and grammar which curb in a child’s memory together with pronunciation.

Children at the age of 3-4 and 5-6 years have week attention focus which does not allow a child to build a long dialogue. However, a child extends this skill through regular practice. The more diverse communication a child receives the better. At the same time it is recommended that a child besides his/her peers has contacts / communicates with children who are younger or older than the child. Through this communication a child learns how to make a dialogue in different styles: with peers, listening up to an older playmate or extending authoritative, coaching approach to the youngest. If you have 2 children with difference in more than one year then you’ve probably witnessed many times how the oldest explains and “coaches” the youngest how to draw or clay modeling, how to dress a doll and to put clothes in order. What’s interesting, the child takes his/her “coaching job” seriously readily applying an authoritative approach obviously adopted from adults.

Children like to imitate a lot at this age. In fact, imitation is a fundamental feature which helps further communication. When a child grimaces, makes faces and twists words a4

they try different “masks” and how they feel inside these roles. The more the child has situations for “trying on”*** different forms of communication the better he/she will be able to adapt in his further life.

***Hence teaching through games. Game situations prompt imagination of children and help bring out and open up a character of a child and, ultimately, form his/her individual character.

Children don’t know how to “maintain” a dialogue purposefully. The best way to help child learn the ropes in maintaining communication is to involve a child in any joint activity with his/her peers. It has been noticed that children best of all establish communication with playmates when they are involved in some joined activity****. At the same time it should be noted that such popular methods to “get a child busy” or “pay attention” as switch on a TV or kinder show don’t develop communication skills at all even if it is a joined event. Up to a certain age (preschool) children have neither ability nor the skills to convert their emotions into topic for discussion. The only sure fire way to prompt children to communication is engage them into some joint or alternating activity.

****In group studying many games are designed to play in pairs. This is the way to develop communicative skills, quick reaction and positive attitude to a playmate.

A child likes being around their peers. Even children who behave more inwardly and reserved, warm up over some time (in a month or two) and became more active and show interest in everything which happens in the classroom. This personality opening up is greatly facilitated by home environment (if there is a group of children who study at home then at least two of them are friends). A child feels comfortable surrounded by people with whom he already established positive personal contact.

A child learns during communication without even noticing it. The effectiveness of studying through games & communication is dozens of times higher because

а) a child naturally uses the words in a way in which he/she would have used them in life

b) mental activity of a child is stimulated by the need to quickly react to the questions/answers/actions of a teacher and his/her peers.

c) a child is motivated by real things, games and actions which happen here and now

d) a child understands the purpose of any word/action which is required in a certain situation as opposed to abstract studying as an obligation.
