. Early start of learning is really helpful to make the children’s mind and brain to develop that will make them understand faster and learn better when they are growing up.

Learning language is not based on facts blindly but also the practical. . • Learning tools help the students to be creative in our learning and not just focusing on the facts. Teachers and lecturers serve as an instructor to just guide their students in the right direction.• Inside and outside class participation is also an important point in learning strategies. it is up to oneself to determine whether to walk in a straight line or go down a steep road. This way we are able to be familiar with the knowledge especially the language.
