Talking with children is one of the best ways to help them learn new words and information.
Talk about what you and your child are seeing and doing wherever you are – at home, on walks in your neighborhood, at the supermarket, in the car. Encourage their talking. “I see something brown – the trunk of that tree. What do you see that is green?”
Stretch your child’s vocabulary. Repeat what your child says and use new words. “You want a banana? Yum, bananas are so delicious!”
If English isn’t your first language, speak to your child in the language you know best.
