Humor Learning French in Kindergarten:
"I have a true story of a child whose parents were asked if they wished her to study French in kindergarten. They were delighted and signed up for the instruction.
After the first week they asked her if she liked her French. A blank stare.
The perplexed parents telephoned the school and were told that the girl was indeed having French every morning from 11:30 to 12:00.
So they again questioned the girl.
‘Oh, mummy, that’s not French; that’s gym period!’
It turned out that she had been having gym in French without being aware that the teacher’s directions and her repetitions and responses were all in French.
Language learning is indeed an unconscious achievement in the early grades, a joyous activity...
Language learning at this age is not only easy, it is practically unconscious.” [Donald D. Walsh]
“There seems to be little if any relationship between general intellectual capacity and the ability of a child to imitate an accent. Pronunciation is essentially an imitative process.
Capacity for imitation is maximum between four and eight. It readily decreases throughout later childhood.” [Wilder Penfield]
