Talking to your toddler about daily activities in English can help them to absorb the language. Here are our top tips for talking to your toddler.

  • Young children need time to absorb the language before they start to speak English.
  • You can help your toddler by talking about their daily activities, for example 'It's time to get dressed! Let's put on your T-shirt, one arm, two arms, that's right!'
  • Repetition is essential.
  • Your young child will start to say the phrases when they are ready.
  • You can also sing a song together about daily routines.
  • For more ideas, read our article 'Speaking English at home'.
