In this podcast we are going to talk about having fun using English at home. We think that having fun with English at home with your child is more important than just the pursuit of perfection. Among parents, some may worry that their pronunciation or grammar is not perfect and thus they are not able to be good “teachers.” We encourage you to not worry about it. You will be really surprised to see how fluently your own child will be able to speak English.
