Do you think babies can’t understand when you talk to them? Think twice! Research has shown that babies are able to discriminate between two languages, when they are born , if they are talked to in both languages in the womb.
Babies’ brains are very receptive to learning, so anything they see, hear, feel, smell or taste will help develop their brain and will make them ready for learning!
If you speak one language, or two or three, don’t be afraid (or embarrased) to talk to your child when they are still inside their mommy’s belly!
Here are 5 things (only 5, but you could do more!) you could do to help with language (or languages) acquisition:
2) Read- Reading is essential for language and literacy acquisition (more on these benefits on another post!)
3) Walk- Yes! walk around the house, the park, the stores, etc. Tell them about their environment. Name everything you see!!
4) Sing-ahh can’t say enough about how great it is to sing to babies!!!
5) Play- Playing is a child’s work!! That’s how they learn best!!
