2202. When our babies start to communicate. Some implications

Krashen wrote about the “silent period”, when learners of a second or foreign language listen a lot, much before they start to speak in English or any other language. 

Lately I’ve been with babies of my family. They imitate adults: they listen a lot and subsequently try to repeat their expressions. 

Mom and Dad and other relatives tend to repeat expressions to those babies, and the seed of language is being planted so. / Photo from: Baby’s-Good-Health www pinterest com
