How else can I develop my child’s language?
Children will have a large vocabulary if they are part of a ‘talk-a-lot’ family:
- Use every opportunity to talk with your child throughout the day – meal times, playing together, bath time.
- Use new and ambitious vocabulary, e.g. 'miserable' instead of 'sad', 'stroll' instead of 'walk'.
- Speak to your child in complete sentences.
- Make up stories together - there’s no need to write it down.
