Start as young as possible (but any time is better than never).
Read picture books with tiny tots. Read with older kids. Let children see you reading and enjoying it. Listen to Radio 4. Listen to audio books (good for everyone, even moreso if the parents don't have a good standard of English themselves, regardless of where they grew up).
Eat meals together, without tv or screens. Talk! Discuss issues of the day.
Avoid tv programmes where characters speak with a limited vocabulary, poorly articulated. Likewise, choose songs carefully.
Hearing unfamiliar words is a good prompt to understanding how they are used and what they mean. Look words up in a dictionary if the meaning is unclear. Deciphering a written word becomes a bit easier if you have come across it as a spoken word at some stage. This applies to all of us, forever.
