What do “we” understand by art?
Why can art be important on second language’s acquisition?
•It stimulates the curiosity and motivation to the acquisition of a second language in early years. (To read a poem and draw the meaning).
• It develops strategies to communicate in other languages. (To make a tale).
• It develops the English comprehension in an interesting and funny way. (To make a game to use it later, for example the ”snakes and ladders”).
• Children enjoy learning. (Playing twister: parts of the body, colors and directions).
• It makes easy the learning by visual resources (Flashcards, pictures, videos…). Picture dictionary.
How can art be used to improve writing and reading?
Writing and reading are stimulated by art because it improves the second language´s acquisition through visual and listening resources.
§ Picture dominoes
§ Newspaper and magazines.
§ Cards (Christmas, birthdays, S. Valentine´s day, Easter time, Saint Patrick´s day…)
To improve writing and reading / Example
- Describe the picture. Use words like colours, numbers, appearance, place…
- Read your composition in class.
- Answer the questions:
What do you like of this picture?
Do you know who is the painter?
How much money will you pay for it? Why?
What’s the connection between art and communication?
We think art is a form of communication because it allows the transmission of ideas, emotions, opinions…
We can develop it in class with our pupils through different methods:
• The silent way (Picture is the main resource: cards, flashcards, posters… The teacher keeps quiet and pupils have to talk about the material used in class.)
• The Community Language Learning (Teacher is like a guide and pupils learn through interaction.)
• The Natural Approach (Learning in a native way.)
• Total Physical Response/ TPR (Teacher gives orders and pupils do it: “look at the door...look at the door” and pupils face turn in the direction to the pointed object.)
