Rhyming is fun: An interactive approach in TEFL to young learners
University of Arts, Faculty of Applied Arts
Keywords: young learners; rhymes; learning; interactive approach; enjoyment
In this paper rhyming is considered as an important pedagogical aid that gives pleasure to young learners of EFL and helps language instructors create a relaxing atmosphere in the classroom. Our main concern will be directed towards rhymes as a material for teaching which brings enjoyment into the classroom through pleasant sensory images, beautiful words and subtle descriptions. By applying the teaching technique of rhyming teachers enter the children's world of images on one side and on the other bring an effective stimulus challenging a greater impact on the learning process. To understand the role of rhyming and implementing rhymes in the young learners' curriculum of EFL, basic methodological principles through the topic approach will be discussed in the paper. The author will show her great support for the advocates of the topic approach after the investigation has been undertaken among the learners of the Little Children Academy in Belgrade. Rhyming can be fun is an interactive activity based on the analyzed language teaching principles.
