Teaching your kids English at home is never easy – but it's a lot easier when you have an arsenal of learning strategies and enthusiasm for the language. Thankfully, today most learning resources are digital, quite rightly allowing kids to use them too, alongside attending immersive language classes. Mobile apps, music, podcasts, TV shows, cartoons, animations, films, YouTube channels – each of these approaches is acceptable, but don't rely on only one. We offer to establish a routine for your child's English sessions at home. YouTube channels are an excellent way for children to learn vocabulary, develop listening and reading skills. For example, you could watch certain children's educational YouTube channels with your kids every day. However, they’ve now got some serious competition because a new wave of children's educational videos have popped up all over YouTube. We've rounded up 12 great YouTube channels on a huge range of topics from bright animated songs and great cartoons for young children to educational videos for curious older learners.
