Children’s English graded cartoons have become an important tool for children’s English learning in more and more families. This article aims to introduce the background, classification, usage, and advantages of children’s English graded cartoons, and provide some suggestions for film selection.
With the development of globalization, English has become a global language. More and more people are beginning to learn English as their second or foreign language. Especially in China, people are paying more and more attention to English education because English has become a necessary condition for China to communicate with other countries in the international community. In order to enable children to better connect with the world in the future, English education has also begun to be invested in children’s learning more and more early.
Children’s English cartoons are mainly divided into preschool and school-age cartoons. According to the American curriculum standards, cartoons can be divided into three levels: A, B, and C. Level A is suitable for kindergarten and preschool education, Level B is suitable for the lower grades of primary school, and Level C is suitable for the upper grades of primary school. At the same time, these grades are also applicable to children’s English learning in China. As children’s English reading ability improves, parents can gradually introduce their children to B – and C-level cartoons.
Children’s English graded cartoons have been widely used in children’s English education, not only appearing in school educational resources and teaching plans, but also becoming a trend for families to invite tutors or use family parent-child education. For example, in the school library, scientific cardboard books are recommended for film and television media, such as selected animations, and series products such as “visible” and “learning without turning” are also loved by many young families.
- Strong attraction: The sound, painting, and color of animated films maximize audio-visual appeal, and their appeal to children far exceeds traditional textbooks or teaching methods.
- Focus on children’s emotions: Many children’s cartoons are equipped with personified characters and vivid storylines, which can better focus on children’s emotions, curiosity, and flexibility, breaking through a single level of knowledge and skills.
High teaching effectiveness: Children’s graded English cartoons mainly impart knowledge through audio-visual methods, which are gradually replacing traditional reading and oral teaching methods, especially those that touch children’s emotions, and are more likely to improve their English learning effectiveness.
Recommendations for film selection
When choosing children’s English graded cartoons, we need to make multiple choices. Animations that only understand the knowledge of the English language discipline are not the best. Animations that children listen to English songs to keep up with their pronunciation and have self confidence in learning are also good. Especially those with children’s living emotions can better stimulate their emotional response and help them take a new step in English learning.
In general, children’s English graded cartoons have become a necessary resource for children’s English learning. Parents can try to incorporate this important tool into their children’s English learning. It should be noted that parents should make reasonable choices based on factors such as the child’s age, English proficiency, interests, and hobbies, to better utilize the advantages of cartoons in English learning. I hope this article can provide some useful references for parents.
