Language teaching supports children to develop a positive attitude towards people of other cultures and languages and fosters a human understanding through empathy. In Class 1 children take everything in a mood of wonder and empathy. Often the whole class will repeat verses and words chorally as one in order to learn new content. All that is learned is repeated thoroughly, so that by the end of year 1 all children have learned songs and verses with actions, finger games, are able to act on simple commands, can count up to 20 and have established a basic vocabulary including daily activities, body parts, colours, seasons and days of the week. The teacher delivers these topics through games, songs and verses. Often children do drawings in their book to associate their own image with a word.
