Angličtina, aneb vracíme se do práce

Ahoj holky, pokud máte obdobný problém jako já, hledáte práci a rády byste se naučily anglicky, nebo si osvěžili angličtinu, alespoň co se týče písemného projevu, budu ráda když si zde budeme psát. Pište v angličtině o čemkoliv. O děckách, o koníčcích o práci. Budu ráda, když se zde objeví i nějaká angličtinářka, co anglicky umí hodně dobře a nás ostatní opraví v gramatice. Angličtinu chtějí dneska opravdu všude a všechny asi potřebujete, nebo budete potřebovat po mateřské sehnat práci. Berte to jako procvičování zábavnou formou. Good luck 😉

@pindruscha My 5 year old son attends now an English course in kindergarten. I do not think he will learn much but probably it will be easier to study English later at school.

@pindruscha I was teaching pre-school kids and to be honest, it always seemed as a money trap for parents. I mean -- you can teach them how to count to ten, colours, songs, animals, but that's pretty much it and their parents pay shitload money for that -- and it's not worth it. what makes sense are international kindergartens where children are in multilingual society and use English all the time. but one hour per is waste of money -- the only positive effect can be that child learns that there are foreign languages as well and when he/she starts to learn properly, he/she is more motivated....

@llluckaaa I think learning English in early years is more motivating than anything else. Children probably forget everything soon and usually at school they will start from the beginning anyway. BUT they learn, that English is FUN, that learning is meaningful. That is the point of learning English at early age for me, I don't want to advertise here, but I know, that Wattsenglish language school is doing very good job in this. They specialise on very young learners, run courses in kinderkardens and in the first and second years in primar schools and they have got fabulous results - u can check on them on their youtube videos and webpages.
The world is small, isn't it? And my first name is Petra - we are Petr and Petra 🙂)

@dora13 No chybí mi prostě hlavně slovní zásoba. Musím hodně koukat do slovníku.

@pindruscha well, I'm not that sure about that. I've been learning English since I was ten and biggest motivation was when I went to England when I was 16. Ever since I was studying hard and managed to get to the level where I'm now...Children don't give a shit until they realize that English is not only an annoying school subject but also a very useful thing that people all around the world use to communicate to each other. But this is a topic for a veeery long discussion I guess 🙂

@dora13 Well, as I wrote earlier, we cannot expect, that a 3-year-old kid will learn like a 10-year-old or like us. Learning at young age should show kids the sense of the language, that it is fun and to motivate them. They are just learning their mother tongue, strugling with it sometimes, so colours, songs, numbers are good. Even we don't see it, they develop in more areas thanks to English too.

@uztotakbude Holky mají pravdu. Já se taky musím dívat do slovníku, nejsi v tom sama 😉 . Buď ráda, že jsou tu holky, které umí dobře a můžou nás táhnout a něco naučit 🙂

@pindruscha In general I agree with you. But as I was working in language industry for years, I also see that sometimes it is really only money trap for parents who want to give their children the best they can -- and it doesn't seem very fair to me.

@dora13 I know what u mean, I've been learning English for about 17 years - I don't think I've stopped eventhough I've got CAE and State exam. I think, that it happens, because kids are pushed at school to learn without fun, then they stop being interested. But when they learn it is fun and that the main purpose is to communicate then they can stay motivated till they become teens - at that age they stop being interested in everything. Unfortunatelly most of the Czech teachers punish children for making mistakes, push them in learning hundreds of words, drill grammar too much and in very boring ways, don't play with them, then kids lose their motivation very soon. 😞

@llluckaaa Jé, to já jsem ráda a moc. Už jen tím čtením a koukáním do slovníku se člověk učí.

@dora13 Yes, sometimes the English courses for kids are only "moneytraps" for parents. But I think, there are also courses which are very effective and parents get what they paid for.

@uztotakbude Stop writing in Czech! 🙂) Try it in English 😉

@uztotakbude To jo. Hlavně je to zábavnější, když je to živá diskuze.
You are right. And it is more fun to study English in such live discussion.

I'm sorry, I probably started quite complicated topic. :/ It is very hard to discuss it even in Czech. :-x
So, let's move on, what about YOUR HOBBIES, ladies? Have you got any?
dora13

@pindruscha you're absolutely right about Czech school system -- the biggest problem there is that English teachers at primary have very bad English and therefore are not able to teach in a funny and motivating way. What a shame. What I was talking more about was language schools etc -- that from my point of view for children who are under let's say six or seven, it is a waste of money.


@uztotakbude try to write in English, that's why you started this topic.

@pindruscha One of my hobbies is for example nutrition. During being at home with children I desided to study it and I graduated in June x-)
