Your Child is Now Building Her Vocabulary From Your Own Word Bank

Your Child is Now Building Her Vocabulary From Your Own Word Bank

At this age, your child might use almost all the words which you use routinely, and will still be learning new words every day. The words from your daily speech register in their minds effectively and hence, they adapt from your word bank rapidly.

What you need to know

You will observe a marked increase in your child’s speech, in multiple languages. Your child will start using words such as ‘more’ and ‘most’, and words needed to make questions such as ‘who’, ‘what’ and ‘where’. They will begin to use ‘me’, ‘mine’ and ‘you’ in regular speech. By three, they will understand the difference between ‘mine’ and ‘yours’.

If your child is late in picking up speech, do not worry, instead make it an everyday routine habit to speak with your child, using different languages. First and foremost make your child understand their mother tongue and bring it into daily speech with your child, and then slowly you can add on other languages too. Your child will understand one-step and two-step instructions, example, ‘Pick up your toys and put them in the box’ or ‘Come over here and have some apples’. Your child might still find it hard to follow instructions about unfamiliar words or tasks, so encourage them to ask you the meanings of anything they don’t understand.
