Among them, crawling, walking, and talking are the abilities that parents must compare. In fact, each child's developmental situation is different, parents should try to avoid comparison. As long as the physical examination is normal, parents don't need to worry too much, and they can exercise their baby's language skills daily. Today, let’s talk with you about how to exercise your baby’s language ability.
The language development of babies of different ages
1-3 months: When the baby is 1 month old, the baby can hear the mother's voice, and he will feel more at ease when talking to him. At 2 months of age, you will start to hear your baby chirp and cooing and repeating some vowel sounds.
4-7 months: About 4 months old, the baby will start to learn words, but you may not be able to hear what he is saying. At 6-7 months, the baby starts to imitate the voice of speaking. You can try to teach him some simple syllables and words, such as father, mother, baby, hug, dog, cat, etc.
8-12 months: Nearly one year old, the chirping and cooing of the first few months have been replaced by clearer syllables. In order to enhance the baby's ability to understand, parents should talk to the baby as much as possible.
1 year old: At first, only you may be able to understand what he is saying. Don’t worry, give him enough time to finish speaking and tell him the correct pronunciation.
2 years old: A 2-year-old baby not only understands most of what you say, but its vocabulary is also rapidly expanding. Able to understand instructions that contain 2-3 requirements, such as "Go to the room and bring the bear doll". At this time, even unfamiliar people can understand most of what he said.
3 years old: At this time, babies can usually speak sentences consisting of 3-4 words, and will imitate most of the pronunciation of adults. Some children even talk non-stop like "talking" and keep asking, parents want Give more patience to respond.
4-5 years old: The baby's language ability will be greatly improved around the age of 4, basically it can accurately produce most of the voices, except for a few voices, which may be inaccurate. Some babies may also learn some swear words from the outside world. At this time, parental intervention and guidance are important.
Ways to exercise your baby's language ability
1. Strengthen the hearing of newborns
Use the time your baby is awake, when changing diapers, before breastfeeding, etc., talk to your baby more, even if your baby doesn't understand what you say, it doesn't matter. While talking to your baby, you must also tease your baby to vocalize, which is conducive to the baby's early language learning.
2. Enrich your baby's body language
Babies who are close to one year old have more vocabulary skills. At this time, the baby's body language, especially facial expressions and gestures, can make adults understand him better. For example, the baby will raise his arms for you to hug; twist the body in your arms to indicate that you want to put him down. On weekdays, when parents and babies get along, they may wish to join gesture games that coordinate hands, arms, facial expressions and simple vocabulary. Through rich body language, they can mobilize the enthusiasm of the baby to express their wishes and lay a good foundation for future language development.
3. Encourage babies to use more language
Babies will not speak more complete sentences until they are one and a half years old, but they will say the key words in the sentences very early. Choosing keywords is especially important for babies who are lazy and like to point with their fingers. When parents talk to the baby, they should slow down and use simple and concise language to express them so that the baby can grasp the meaning of the words.
·Play word games
The baby likes games related to his body parts. After playing with toes a few times, he will quickly know what a toe is. Rhythmic games, such as counting and finger-playing, as well as singing along with movements, are especially useful for encouraging children to use gestures and keywords. After a while, when you sing the beginning of a song, your baby can continue singing. Such games make the process of learning languages more interesting for babies.
·Chat while watching a picture book
This is one of the important ways to help babies understand the connection between words and objects. When your baby has made progress, you can use a higher-level picture book, point to the illustration and ask him, "Where is the puppy?", to help the baby connect the image in the book with the objects in real life.
In the process of exercising the baby's language ability, parents should give more patience, spend more time and energy, and these efforts will be of great help to the improvement of the baby's language ability.
