Ah, the joy of sound and meaning!   What power - to just be able to communicate "self"!

Hey, I was just kidding! I was being ironic. Nobody will ever guess what they were really communicating, it doesn't really matters to me.

I have embedded this video in my Infant Education class blog as a way to introduce some of the aspects they must learn about language acquisition. In fact, that's part of their curriculum in Spanish, a core subject. I will be dealing with this aspect of Second Language Acquisition in their second year of study. I won't be teaching just English by then but the Didactics of English as a Foreign Language in Infant Education Stage (from 0-3 years old)

Rosa,

 

Yes, I know and my response got lost in the translation....

 

I think that is super, about the curriculum topic. I've long felt, each time I look over a syllabus in TESOL that there isn't enough about L1 acquisition or particularly child development. So crucial to understanding how us humans relate to, form and "grow" language.
