Pre-schoolers watching Dora and developing positive attitude towards English language, and English language use
Is there a relation among pre-school children’s watching Dora, their English use, and positive attitude towards the English language?
The overall analysis of the data shows that parents believe that there is a positive influence of watching Dora, towards developing a positive attitude to English language, and English language use.
Dora provides visual aids, authentic language input, communicative activities, and systematic repetition of vocabulary by chunking, singing, role playing, and games. In addition she offers a lot of positive reinforcements which encourage participation.
The input of Dora can be a very good basis for constructing the basics of the English language for pre school children.
