Wherever you live, there must be a local fruit market somewhere around the corner. Go and discover it with your kids and let the colours and smells engage your senses. As you go from one stand to another, pick some fruit, name them in English and ask your child to repeat the words after you. As you perform the activity, you can touch the fruit, smell it, observe its colours and comment on it. Decide on a few pieces that you like the most and buy the fruit. If this is an option, ask the stand owner if your child can try and purchase the fruit in English. You can help your little ones speak in phrases and have them repeat after you Can I have some… (e.g. apples) please? How much is / are…(e.g. these apples)?…
