University of Belgrade, Teacher Training Faculty,
Keywords: early age; integrating contents; forms of teaching; teaching materials; didactical devices
Teaching a foreign language at an early age requires the use of specific methods and approaches, as well as forms of teaching. The purpose of successful developing language knowledge of early age children should be very similar to the natural process of adopting mother tongue. Integrating contents from many subjects and fields of knowledge will make learning a foreign language more efficient and purposeful. Apart from the course book, as the basic teaching device, additional didactical devices and games are of a great importance for learning a foreign language at an early age, because they significantly influence the class dynamics and consequently the attention span of children. Special advantage for teaching and learning material is represented by various materials available for children outside the school context, and which could serve the didactical means. The aim of this paper is to point at various forms of interaction and didactical materials as the basis for application of holistic approach to teaching English.
