Our Badanamu ESL program engages young learners through play and a natural-language acquisition methodology. These approaches motivate young learners as they absorb the basic fundamentals of the English language.
Second Language Acquisition
All new learners of English progress through the same stages of acquiring a new language.
Stage 5 is an advanced period for the learner to be near native-speaker level and continue to analyze and use language independently.
Stage 4 is a transitional period in which the child is making more complex sentences to express thoughts and continues asking questions to clarify what is learned.
Stage 3 is an inquisitive period for a child to begin asking simple questions based on what they see, hear, and understand.
Stage 2 is an active period for a child to be receptive to the learning material and build vocabulary.
Stage 1 is a “silent” period for a child to listen, respond to visuals, and copy movements to show comprehension.
Bada Rhyme Oral Language
Bada Rhyme is the foundation program that children are first introduced to, with a focus on oral language skills. Nursery rhymes have been passed down for generations and are often a child’s first experience with literacy. It exposes children to patterns in speech, phonemic sounds, and the structure of a book.
