Taking an online course or attending an English class can definitely enhance the vocabulary of your kids. But don’t these approaches get tedious and subsequently take its toll on young brains?
In a world where everybody is talking of innovations and being smart, for sure you would want an easy, fun way to help your children build English vocabulary. How about songs, dancing, and building your lexis all at one go?
Let’s start the ball rolling with one of the Vocab Tunes’ songs ‘Get Carried away’, comprising a widely used Latin root word ‘Port’.
The word ‘port’ means ‘carry’. If we add prefixes such as im- and ex- before ‘port’ then it will create two new words import and export. Here, both words convey the same meaning ‘carry’ but are used differently. When one state imports goods from another state, it ‘carries’ them into its own land. Conversely, exporting goods mean to ‘carry’ them out from one state to another.
Transportation is the act of ‘carrying’ people from one place to another. A portfolio is a case in which you can ‘carry’ items such as works of art, photographs, etc. Continuing with the word ‘port’, portable means easily ‘carried’ while the word deport stands for ‘carry’ from somewhere.
You can see how a single root can give birth to thousands of words just by adding prefixes and suffixes. You can also look at some other roots to boost up your vocab here.
All students between 5 and 14 years of age, swing along with our upbeat songs. For more details, register for
