I’m really keen to do baby signing with my daughter, she’s 8 months old - have I left it too late to start? Do you have any tips on how best to teach this? Thanks very much 😊

My boy is 13 months old. My husband and I are both multilingual. We’re both mother tongue English, so we only speak English at home, but it’s really important to us that our boy is multilingual as well. When do you recommend introducing words from a foreign language. We don’t want to start too early and confuse him, but also want to make the most of him being a language sponge whilst being little!

I use 3 languages with my son and my partner speaks English. Should he still hit all of these milestones?
Helen

I was also going to ask about introducing other languages as I am bilingual. Any guidance would be good, thank you.

my daughter is allmost 2 years old. I speak 3 language and my husband 2 language. we speak English between parents, but we speak bangla to the daughter and I speak Swedish also to my daughter, basically 2 languages to her. Is that good? I translate sometimes between the two languages. Or should I just stick to one language? will my child get confused?

my son was 2 in August and we still have no words. I've been trying phonics wirh him but still nothing. As you say, he has had regression. He did say mummy and daddy but then learnt to walk so lost these words. we have lots of sounds and gestures but nothing else. should I be doing more? seeking help?

my little boy is coming up to 2 in a few weeks. He communications very well via by using gestures and sounds. He still babbles quite a lot, but doesn't really say many words at the moment. he copy's animals sounds, he understands instructions very well. should I worried that he isn't saying many actual words at this stage? how can I encourage him to speak?

Hi, both me and my partner are Italian and speak Italian to our 13 months old because we feel more comfortable. I’m worried because he’s exposed to English at nursery only, and when seeing friends, which is more limited now with lockdown on and off. Sometimes I tell him a word in italian and repeat it in English, but I’m aware I don’t want to pass on wrong pronunciation. Is it still good enough, better than nothing?

my little boy had just turned 2 a couple of weeks ago, he still babbles, he can say animal sounds, some numbers, abc, he understands everything and he now copying songs and sounds , but not saying 2 words yet , should I be worried?

should I translate between two languages or stick to one language in each conversation?

my little girl is 16 months and we speak to her in 2 languages but she hasn’t shown any signs of picking up words, she does gestures and understands things we say, but should I be worried that she isn’t saying any words at all?

45:39
Should we be encouraging correct words or respond to them with the word they use? e.g. my boy says baboo when he’s hungry, I then say oh do you want food? To try and show him the correct word, but showing him that I understand him

My boy when he was 1.5 years old he knew the alphabet, animals, shapes, numbers about over 100 words he said. Now he is 2.5 and he has a difficulty to express himself, when he wants something he starts screaming and I have to guess.Ηe had started saying phrases"give food now" and now he forgot it . I dont know what's happened and how I can help him.

So if i'm asking my daughter if she would like a banana, should I just say 'banana?' rather than 'Would you like a banana?'
Grace Jephson
