Education is one of the stepping stone for a brighter prospect! by Joy
As a parent, we always want the best for our children. We always think ahead for their future endeavors, and we all believe that education is one of the stepping stone for a brighter prospect.
I studied in an urban institution here in the Philippines. I remember back when I was in grade school, there was only one teacher who served as our adviser and educator for 50 students. I found it tough as a beginner because the teacher can’t handle and give her whole attention to all of us. I always wanted to learn various things every day but the worst situation had hindered my youthful mind to learn and discover new things at 12 years of age. I couldn’t speak English well and it made me uncomfortable and lost my self-confidence. But this situation did not stop me from doing the things I love which is studying and reading. Instead of complaining, I worked hard with the help of my father who taught me how to read and who bought different reading materials as my reference and study tools. I attended extra English classes and accepted English tutor from higher years to help me improved my speaking and comprehending skills. I kept doing an extra mile to help my learnings and I could say it was all worth it as it contributed a lot to my progress as a person, educator, and a mother.
Now that I have a son, I feel anxious about what his young mind can learn. I want him to be more active and studious but at his age, all he wants is to play and run around. Instead of putting him in a room full of words and numbers, I let him play but I keep interacting with him by speaking English all the time so that he can develop new words and learnings as he grows up.
Before I joined Englishbuds, I worked in different online school where I encountered different students who were young professionals, homemakers, and children. I was so amazed because there are so many people around the world who wanted to learn English and it’s my job to help them. This for me is very fulfilling to share my knowledge and learning to others.
As a parent, I know we are doing our best for our children and it’s not too late to learn because every one of us can learn new things every day regardless of what age. I believe that with the parent’s support and supervision, a child’s interest will boost and make them more active and happy. It’s our job to help and guide them. Activities such as tutoring class, playtime, and merging with people are the best way to learn how to speak and understand the language. And here in Englishbuds, our goal is to help children learn English and we’re doing the best way we can.
