Basically, linguistic intelligence: developing a way with words
While still in the womb a baby will learn to recognise his motherís voice. From four days old he can recognise the speech patterns of his motherís language. Before his first birthday he begins to associates words with meanings. By 18 months he is beginning to develop a vocabulary which, by the time he is two years old, will have grown to include up to 2,000 words. How do children achieve this amazing grasp of language so quickly?
Your childís ability to use words and to communicate what he knows through speaking and listening, reading and writing will be one of the keys to success in learning and in life. But your child will need help in developing his ability to use words.
