Raising children at all is difficult work and teaching them can be a whole other story completely which is why Levana’s Human Development is providing family’s these life hacks toward teaching young children aged newborn to 12 months of age how to speak and remember multiple languages.
Languge Development in Early Childhood Steps:
Oral Language: When handling a young child and teaching them a language needs a strong predictor of vocabulary and literary. Allowing children to watch your mouth and physically gain a view of how your creating these words before applying meaning stimulates the early mind into memory. Young children are extreme vulnerable to learning forms of communication at younger stages of there development. The more children hear a language directed at them personally, the more likely they’ll develop the idea of speech at later points of languages development making it easier to understand and process multiple languages.
Literacy and Print concepts
Children’s exposure to print during the early childhood stages is significantly correlated to literacy development. Levana’s Human Development have written extensively about the importance of creating print-rich environments within classrooms across the nation. Children have a great exposure ability to books, online articles and activities all within the same language, where reading is essential in the classroom or at home although having books in the classroom or household which contains various languages can open new doors to language development in early childhood education.
Teachers are advised to have a book area for early childhood although asking if they have books related to multiple languages is a good question to be asking.
