    How can I help my child improve his knowledge of languages (especially spelling) and his memory?

    Dear Parent,

    For a child to learn a language, the first step is to encourage listening. The next step is to teach the child to speak and communicate in that language. Reading, spelling, and writing will follow after that. So the best way to teach your child a language is to get your child to meet people who speak the language, watch movies and videos in that language, or listen to speeches and talks in that language. Fortunately, young children pick up languages easily.

    If you know the language, get your child to converse with you in that language. Else, create opportunities for your child to speak with others in that language. If she makes a mistake or says the wrong word, instead of trying to correct her or say she is wrong, you could say, “you mean….”, or repeat what she says correctly. She will learn.

    To encourage reading and spelling, read to your child daily. If your child can read, encourage her to read daily – anything she likes as long as she reads. To improve spelling you can play word games like Scrabble or taking a turn to say one letter in a word to complete the word. Write out words, give your child letters to fill the word, and so on. Make learning fun and not a chore!

    Memorizing poems, songs, and even slokas, or playing memory games can help strengthen your child’s memory.
