Vocabulary is the main tool for the students in their attempt to use English effectively.When confronted with a native English speaker, when watching a movie without subtitle or when listening to a favorite English song, when reading a text or when writing a letter to a friend, students will always need to operate with words.Once we know why English is so important, we can understand why English should be taught in early primary school.
This is because, there is a belief in our society that young children learn languages better and more easily than older children (The Primary English Teacher's Guide); and also the belief that of course, there are advantages to introducing early language learning which outweigh the disadvantages. Middle And we have to remember that also centuries ago, the wealthy people were really interested in learning Latin.
So why should we not engage in the learning of the English language in early primary schools?
Vocabulary represents one of most important skills necessary for teaching and learning a foreign language.
It is the basis for the development of all the other skills: reading comprehension, listening comprehension, speaking, writing, spelling and pronunciation.
Nowadays, governments and schools all over the world are thinking, or have already decided to introduce English to early primary school level.
We can also see through the time, that in these times, there are more parents who believe that having English as a tool will benefit their children in different aspects, by giving them more opportunities to gain economic, cultural or educational advantages.
In brief, we should remember that English is spoken throughout the world, and used in all the contexts.
Therefore we can conclude that English should be taught since primary school because it is beneficial in different aspects, and because early primary school is the best stage to start learning a language.
Most learners, too, acknowledge the importance of vocabulary acquisition.
In my experience as a teacher, I noticed the fact that students usually find it difficult to speak English fluently.
