Tips to teach kannada to your kid:
1. Teach through repetition.
Children learn through repetition and active engagement with another language. You can apply this technique at home by doing an activity in English, and then doing the same activity in a second language a few days later. For instance, if you are making an egg-carton train with your child, the first time you would emphasize the vocabulary for train, wheel, egg, and various colors in English. Later, you could do the same activity and express the same words in a second language.
