Abstract

When children are between the ages of one and five years, language is key to all his or her learning – cognitive thinking, social interaction and emotional development. However, as children enter school, language, unfortunately, becomes a 'subject', dealt with in isolation. We ignore the fact that children can assimilate concepts in maths, science, and social studies only when they listen, talk, read and write about what they are learning. Without listening and reading skills, children cannot understand ideas, and only a strong foundation in speaking and writing skills can reflect their thinking process. As teachers and educators, we need to recognize that language skills are a prerequisite for understanding concepts in other subjects.
