Abstract


Language is the most effective tool for communicating. As the role of communication tool, there are many kinds of languages and it is different in every country, even in every cities. English language is become an international language that should be learnt by people around the world. Beside we use mother tongue as communication, we should mastery another languages too. There are two ways for SLA. It could be by formal or informal. In this case, second language acquisition for children is easier to examine than adult. As we know that they have a golden age, where in this situation they could learn anything easily. SLA for children differs from adults at least three ways: children are still developing their brains whereas adults have conscious minds, and adults have at least a first language that orients their thinking and speaking. Although some adult second-language learners reach very high levels of proficiency, pronunciation tends to be non-native. Otherwise, they tend to imitate adults‘ style. The appropriate way in getting SLA is by watching cartoon movie in English subtitle. Children like imitating, by watching cartoon movie they learn easier to pronounce and also practice to speak English. Through cartoon movie they are more enthusiastic and it can create their critical thinking.
