Innovative solution in the foreign language education of young children It is a scientific fact that young children’s conceptual thinking is not as developed as that of teenagers or adults, so they use other methods, like their senses to observe the world surrounding them and to understand its phenomena. This is why it is essential for them to get to know several tools and objects during their activities. Information gained as a result of seeing and touching is well complemented by new knowledge acquired through hearing. This knowledge, because it is in foreign language, has primary role in learning the correct language model, the sonority and intonation of the language. Besides, the sonority and rhythm of nursery rhymes or songs and the movements related to listening them (motion perception) provide a pleasant feeling for children. Due to its function „Tale pillow” can be the perfect accessory of young children’s language education.

Advantages: One of the main advantages of the tale pillow is that it provides a much quicker learning method than traditional education. When the mind’s state is lowered to alpha, the level of brain activity rises allowing details to be memorized in a more effective way. Information memorized in the alpha state is stored automatically in the long term memory, where it can be easily recalled from later on. Children between the age of 1.5-5 stay most of their time in alpha state during their consciousness, this way they are able to acquire even 3 languages easily. Based on the above information, the users of tale pillow will be able to effectively acquire any foreign language while lying down on an armchair or relaxing. Much time, energy and money can be saved with this effective method of relaxed language training. Other advantage of the tale pillow is that it is a device that can be useful for each family member. • Placing it into the baby’s bed, the infant/baby will feel peace falling asleep, while listening to voices he/she heard in the uterus as a fetus.
