Are you wondering how to teach English?
Are you looking for a fun, fast, easy way to teach English to your English language learners (ESL students)? Well, look no further. I have had the opportunity to review a great English language program that is used all over the world. It’s forever changing lives one lesson at a time.
I’m quite IMPRESSED!
Teach My Children English, Inc. (TMCE) is a Christian-based company that is determined to help the poor around the world through the teaching of Easy English lessons. Teach My Children English started as a response to God’s thunderous voice commanding Teri Spray (Founder of TMCE) to “Teach My Children English” one morning in 2010. In 2014, she was approached by an Indian ministry leader asking “Can you teach my Indian teachers to speak English well? Will you come and teach my teachers to teach English?” It was through these experiences that Miss Spray founded her company and developed her program to teach English in a fun and easy fashion.
What is different about Teach My Children English teaching methods?
- Every lesson contains action, color, picture, and rhythm
- Lessons build upon one another
- Sound drills teach speaking and listening
- Enjoyable songs, games, and activities make practice fun
How to teach English with TMCE
TCME uses rhythm, poems, and songs throughout their curriculum. The system is very easy to use as it is designed to let the learners work at their own pace using audio and video lessons. Easy English makes reading easy for all children, even those with dyslexia. Easy English uses easy to teach multi-media lessons and whole-brain activities. The proven sound-based approach to teaching phonograms improves visual processing, auditory processing, language development, speech, articulation, reading comprehension, and writing skills.
Many Autistic learners also do well with this program.
The Easy English curriculum uses a very simple and basic approach to teaching English through the use of rhythm to facilitate retention, reading, and speaking. This is not a new method of teaching. We use rhythm all the time to teach our children to speak, and Dr. Seuss (one of my favorite children’s authors) makes fantastic use of rhythm in all of his books. TMCE uses rhythm, poems, and songs throughout their curriculum.
They also teach one sound at a time with each lesson building on the previous and introducing new words with each lesson. The system uses basic words to make short stories that are fun to read. Games and songs keep the joy in the journey. Rhythm exercises keep the learning strong, and language exercises make the comprehension strong and teach speaking skills.
There are three volumes of curriculum, an action-based picture directory for review and practice, as well as a teacher’s guide. Every lesson, as well as the Picture Directory, has been recorded on video as well as for you to read and speak. TMCE has added games and songs that are demonstrated by children to make the learning lasting and enjoyable.
For those that work in foreign countries teaching English, this is a great program to leave behind because it nearly teaches itself. Learning English changes lives. Even a begging child can receive help from English speaking visitors if he/she can speak English well. English speaking children can avoid child labor, sex trafficking, and grinding poverty. Speaking American English clearly opens job opportunities worldwide.
So you might be wondering if you can use this program for your children who speak solely English.
Absolutely you can.
As a reading teacher in a public school, this program is fabulous. Not only do I love the heart behind this program, but the fact that it requires the students to use multi-senses when learning phonics. I am definitely going to supplement the TMCE charts and songs with my ESL students.
