Why cartoon is useful for learning English

When was the last time you have watched a cartoon? Two days ago? Two months? Two years ago? When we speak of cartoons, we have to be more specific because some of them are geared for mature audiences while others are for children. In this article we’ll be talking specifically about children’s cartoons (you know, the Mr. Men and Little Miss type), and how these cartoons can help people to learn English.

When people think of learning a new language, they tend to think of attending a language school. English language schools are very useful (for obvious reasons) but aside from just homework and class-room lecture, there are other useful ways for you to learn English without having to sit in a classroom.  Watching movies from a DVD with the subtitles turned on is one option. Listening to English music is another. But do people really think about watching cartoons? When we think of cartoons, we might think about childish entertainment made for laughs. But guess what? Cartoons for the little ones are beneficial for teaching English to adults too. Cartoons are usually made with simple plot and dialogue so that children are able to understand them. The spoken dialogues are not as complicated as in a movie so it is easier for ESL students to grasp the conversation between the cartoon characters. If you’re living in the US, then you can catch the Saturday morning cartoon shows. However, if you are living in other parts of the world for example Thailand, and would like to watch English-speaking cartoons on regular television, it’s not always possible. There are always DVDs you can purchase, or free cartoon shows online.
