How to teach kids Turkish in 10 steps 

Çocuklar için Türkçe

 
Motivation, Motivation, Motivation

It's extremely important that kids have motivation to learn Turkish. How to increase their motivation is not as difficult as you might think.You can simply do the following

1- Rewards
Offer them rewards for learning extra words or phrases (e.g. , a chocolate bar from Turkey, a trip to a Turkish restaurant, or his/her favorite place, such as an amusement park)

2- Surprises
Especially for small children, including infants and toddlers, surprises are proven to increase motivation. If you play games like peekaboo (for babies) your child will be able to keep paying attention to the program.

3- Fun & Games
Playing games like hide and seek by counting in Turkish, online games or a cardboard game will do the trick.

4- Keep it short and simple
Not only adults but also children automatically lose interest if what they are asked to do is difficult. When you ask them to learn only a few Turkish words at a time, they will find the task more enjoyable and increase their confidence in learning Turkish.


 Practice, Practice, Practice

Practice makes it perfect the old saying goes. If your child has no opportunity to practice what he/she learned, you can make sure that all the efforts are in vain.

5- Flash cards
Flash cards might sound like an old school method but they are effective. Similar to Dino Lingo motion images, how flash cards work is very simple: they create object-sign associations in your childs brain after a short period of exposure. You can use Dino Lingo Turkish Flash cards or make your own and practice with your child.

6- Cartoons
Dino Lingo Turkish is a perfect combination of cartoons. Children love watching cartoons. You can also find tons of Turkish cartoons available online.

7- Children's Stories
If your child knows some Turkish, you can purchase Turkish story books on the internet. If he/she doesn't know how to speak Turkish, you can read fairy tales by replacing some words with Turkish words.
 
8 - Music & songs
Music is universal, and you can find many Turkish songs available online and in supermarkets. It is also not a bad idea to buy some Turkish children's song CD and play it in the car or at home as background music. Studies have shown that even background TV can increase children's vocabulary.
 
9- Talking with native speakers
Another way of practicing Turkish is giving your child opportunities to interact with native speakers of Turkish. It would also be a fun family activity to visit a place where Turkish is spoken such as a Turkish restaurant, supermarket, cultural center, school, community center etc.
 
10- Test & quiz
You can speak to your child in Turkish if you know how to speak Turkish. If you don't know how to speak Turkish, you can still ask questions like "what is "this" in Turkish?" by showing an object. If you know a few words in Turkish, you can show him/her 2 objects and ask "which one is "..."?" Kids love drawing things, you can also play with your children and ask them to draw objects by calling object names in Turkish, e.g. "can you draw me a ...?"

 

Summary: Kids love watching Dino Lingo Turkish videos regularly and play Dino Lingo Turkish language online games. Visit places where Turkish is spoken. Play with fun educational stuff like Turkish jigsaw puzzles and Turkish toys. Don't forget the posters (Turkish alphabet, sight words, flag, map). Interact with other kids who can speak Turkish or studying together with someone with whom they can practice Turkish.
