About the Language Learning Process
It is a life time journey to learn a language, however the major part of this journey takes place in the early years. Brain development of a child in their first five years is usually at its peak. The high receptiveness of the child makes them able to learn many things through their experiences. Studies prove that the children learn the languages through the back and forth dialogue with important adults in their family. In order for the child to be motivated to learn a parent needs to give a good feedback any time the child communicates through gesture, sound or a word.
The language learning process of a child will benefit from a responsive feedback. Children who rarely communicate or do not communicate at all did not receive the essential feedback that would have built their language skills. Children will communicate less if their family members talk less or when the children are talked to less. This fact makes it crucial for adult family members to always respond to any communication gesture from a child. Otherwise, the child will have a delay in their communication development. Some parents are advised that if they wait, the child will outgrow this situation. The child’s language learning process in this critical stage is derailed by the wait and watch and watch approach.
Participation in conversations and activities will be very hard if the children have not developed good speech. The matter is even worse when they do not get the help that they require. Chances are the children will be left behind more. On the other hand, a child who receives extra support from important adults in his life can improve tremendously. The situation can be improved when the speech therapy is done at an early stage. Skills can therefore be developed by the children through communication skills. The success of the children in their future academic and personal life is helped by this.
There are certain tips to help a child in language learning. Assisting the kids to build their language skills is the first. It is possible to do this by starting fake conversations with your child. The child should be taught non-verbal communication skills as the other tip. You should be there to guide the children. Communication skills can be learnt by the children through watching their parents. Be careful when you are communicating as the children will take in what they see and hear. This will help them have great communication skills.
You should be involved in their learning process and offer guidance. The feedback a child gets when they communicate reinforces their language skills.
