How children acquire a language

As you are probably aware it becomes much more difficult to learn a language as you become older. Children seem to have a natural ability to pick up languages at an early age, whether it is a first language or maybe an additional one. The major reason for this is the fact that they are able to digest a language subconsciously it is easy for them to imitate the sounds. It is much easier to absorb a language when you are surrounded by it.

Languages is developed gradually by the intimidation of sounds, as the child interacts more with an adult they will become to form sentences, this happens in both their ‘first language’ and any additional languages they learn later on. You should help your child understand what you are trying to say, from that they will be able to pick out words they can use in future speaking.

Children learn from the adults that are around them. They try to make sense of the world by asking the adult and picking up new points on the language. Perhaps one of the best ways to do this is through games and various activities, something which a parent can easily get their child involved in. It doesn’t really matter what sort of activity you carry out with the child, they will pick up the language because of it. One of the best activities that a parent can do with their child is reading through a picture book, this will enable the person to get a visual representation of the words being read. This is due to the fact that children learn through interaction with the environment and making sense of the world as opposed to the adults who learn using complex grammatical structures (which is incredibly difficult for adults to do)

Children actually want to learn something as quickly as possible, which is how they are able to pick up a language much quicker than an adult would be able to do. What a parent should do here is try to motivate their child to continue their learning. This can be accomplished by asking the child to ‘act out’ what they have learned. This could be something as simple as reciting some numbers or maybe even making up their own play. They key thing here is that the adult should actively encourage it. Just one tip here, you should never correct your child at all, this will demotivate them. Pretty sure they will pick the correct information up on their own.

I think in summary the way children learn a language is through constant exposure to it, as I mentioned previously a child is able to pick up a language incredibly quickly via this means. The major benefit is that if they learn a second language at a younger age they will find it much easier to pick up additional languages in the future. Just give your child constant encouragement and they will get there in the end.
